American Heroes Weekend

Luc and I joined Denise and Peaches of Penny's From Heaven for the American Heroes Weekend at Camp Mabry in Austin, TX.  The two-day event included soldiers staging military reenactments, demonstrations by parachuting guardsmen, hands-on lessons in military vehicles, weapons displays, and an air show.  Saturday was a beautiful day filled with American heroes with their families.  It was such an honor to just be around men and women who have pledged their all for the rest of us.


Peaches and Luc in front of the Penny's From Heaven table.


Since I was helping with manning the Penny's From Heaven table, I wasn't able to get up close to the helicopters as I would have liked.  I think the green and white copter was giving rides because it was taking off and landing all during the day. 



Camp Mabry has a replica of the Vietnam War Memorial. 


There was a variety of services represented that are available to American heroes and their families, one of which is Soldiers' Angels, http://www.soldiersangels.org/Penny's From Heaven has a program called Train A Dog, Save A Warrior (TADSAW).

Until next time, God bless.
