Annual Veterans & 1st Responders Tribute Dinner
Bob Van Dunk, CEO and Jim Dunn, COO of the Henry Co. Veterans Support Group would like to thank Natural Enclosures for sponsoring the Annual Veterans & 1st Responders Tribute Dinner this past Saturday (Jan 18th) held at the Locust Grove Recreation Center. Owner and proprietor Danny Kilpatrick funded his Operations Manager Adam Jones, and Mat Strahin of Fabworks in Conyers to put on this tribute dinner. Jones said that he and Strahin both love to grill and "just wanted to give back to the veterans and first responders that have given so much of themselves for us".
Others that donated time and services were: A T-Shirt of McDonough, Metro Metal Works, Nolram Bak (Challenge Coins), Scott Barrett, Singer, Col(R) Rev Glen Stringeham, and the Jackson High School JROTC Cadets for posting & retiring the colors.
Twantta Clerk-Jennings from the GA Pubic Safety Training Center (GPSTC) dropped off donations of food & toiletry items to VSG for veterans in need. One of the many functions of the GPSTC is to provide training to 1st Responders (fire, police, etc.) on how do respond to veterans experiencing PTSD. Thank you GPSTC for your support!
