Next Wed, Thur & Fri, Heuser Chiropractic is having an open house with food and all. They’ll have free spinal exams. I go there for Physical Therapy because my C4,5,6 fusion is degenerating on either side. They’ve helped me to stop falling, dropping things and pain. They work very well with VA.
2020 has been a really challenging time for so many. I am hoping you can help in remembering the more than 3,200 Veterans who rest at Evergreen Cemetery. This is the oldest cemetery in Colorado Springs. We still intend to lay wreaths on National Wreaths Across America Day, 19 Dec 2020, 10:00 am. Even just one wreath donated helps move us closer to the goal. Your support also helps Evergreen Heritage in their efforts to preserve and restore many of the monuments and headstones in need of some attention. Please share with your social media network. Together, we can make it happen!

you’re invited to our opening ceremony next Friday, 0800. On Friday, 4 Sep, Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center will be hosting our 5th Annual Patriot Day Give Back event where we'll again be providing free food and personal necessities to our community. In the past we’ve focused exclusively on military-affiliated clients, but this year with the Covid situation and growing need in our community we’re expanding the scope of the event to include first responders and the entire community for people that need some help. We anticipate helping over 800 families. The history of Patriot Day dates back to 2001 when then President Bush signed a joint resolution designating September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day," in the observance of September 11 terrorist attacks and as an annually recognized "National Day of Service and Remembrance." On 9/11 the American people demonstrated that in times of hardship, the values that define us do not simply endure -- they are stronger than ever. Today with the current challenges facing us, Mt Carmel and our partners wanted to come together and use this year’s Patriot Day to provide service and goodwill to the entire community. We have several partners that are truly going above and beyond to make this year’s expanded event a success: · Feed the Children · Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes · Care & Share · Colorado Springs Food Rescue · 4KidsSports · And Tom Miller, Mt Carmel’s Chairman for Community Connections, has once again done a tremendous job of getting key sponsors such as Dominoes and Pepsi With these partners and many others, we want to use this event to reaffirm that same spirit of patriotism, service, and unity that we felt in the days and months that followed 9/11. By volunteering our time, skills, and resources, we make our community stronger. On Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, we reaffirm our pledge to carry on the legacy of courage and compassion of those we lost on 9/11, and to move forward together as one people. We’ll start the day with an opening ceremony at 0800 and have invited local politicians, first responder and local military leadership, media, our corporate partners, and our fellow veteran support agencies. At 0900 directly across the street, in the Norris Penrose upper parking lot (same location as in the past) at the corner of Moreno Ave and Communication Circle in Colorado Springs, the food event will begin. Recipients simple drive through the gate, stay in their vehicles, and follow the loop where they’ll receive food kits, have access to sports equipment, and meet with support agency representatives, and for the last stop we’ll have our own Denver Bronco alumnus Randy Gradishar there to sign autographs. For the first two hours military affiliated clients will be allowed to drive through, then at 1100 first responders and their families can join in, and then at noon we’ll open it up to the entire community. And we’ll be out there until we give out all the food. We’re asking participants to preregister so we can speed up the process. And they can do that at veteranscenter.org or by calling Mt Carmel at 719-772-7000. The really good news is based on need, we’ve arranged to double the number of food kits and now have two tractor trailers arriving along with other Partners that are bringing food. We’re projected to help 800 families that day. The entire event will be held outside and we’ll be adhering to Covid cautionary measures (masks, hand washing, social distancing, customers will remain in their vehicles). PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
