OMR Episode 16: November Veterans Events

I consider November Veterans Month. There is Veterans Day and the Marine Corps Birthday. I wanted to highlight some events that are happening in this area and nationwide.

There is no question of the week, or anything from The POG & GRUNT Complaint Department. This week is all about Veterans Events for the month of November.

 

Guardian Overwatch – North Carolina Military Appreciation Concert

Veteran Appreciation Concert – November 10th Fort Bragg, NC

Episode 5 – Guardian Overwatch (Click on the link to check it out) was about Guardian Overwatch. Guardian Overwatch helps and supports active duty military and veterans. I got to know Brandon and his team when they helped a family in Texas.

November 10th, 2016 Guardian Overwatch will be putting on a rock concert at Fort Bragg, NC. You can get more details at the Guardian Overwatch NC Facebook Page. This kind of event is important because volunteers put it on and all proceeds allow Guardian Overwatch to stay on mission.
