Puddles and Diane call up all the members that escorted the EOW traveling trailer and presented them with a patch to show appreciation.
Jeramiah’s sister called him and asked if he and some others would help a vet, suffering paralysis, move a bed in his home. He and a few other helped with moving the bed and other things as well as the vet down the stair to a lower floor. After seeing how limited and hard it is to get around for this vet, was thinking about Veterans Day coming up and how it would be nice if someone could spend a little time with him? Something to think about.
