President Report: Not feeling too good may leave early. Group went to visit Guy, vet suffering ALS. Stayed for over an hour and a half. They fed us pizza, beer and soda. Found out Guy was an Army officer and helicopter pilot, 2 tours of duty in Viet Nam, 16 years in the Army retired a Colonel, went into restaurant business and retired here in Spokane Valley. Asked how the VA was doing with the care he was getting and he was satisfied with it. He had a piece of medical equipment that was broken and was having a little problem having it replaced or repaired. Scout was able to locate one with help from Newby-ginings and made arrangements to get it the next day and delivered it to them. It was good to hear him laugh and talk about himself and life in general, his wife was so happy that we made the time to come over and keep him company, it meant a lot to her that we came to honor her husband.
Thanks to Tex for getting and delivering the 8 tables the auxiliary asked for.
