AFSA Visits Vets

My husband and I are part of an organization called the Air Force Sergeants Association. The Air Force Sergeants Association (AFSA) is a federally chartered non-profit organization representing the professional and personal interests of active duty, retired and veteran Total Air Force and their families. For more information on the AFSA here is there site :Air Force Sergeants Association

Every third Saturday of the month, a group of us go to a few of the local retirement homes to visit retired vets who've served our country! We visit Betty DareThe Aristocrat Assisted Living, and Casa Arena Blanca Nursing Center. A lot of these vets don't have any other visitors. They really enjoy seeing the dogs that come with to visit. Today, we brought our dog and TSgt Siers brings his two. The vets really light up and the dogs seem to love it too. More hands to pet them I'm guessing. If you're in the Alamogordo area and would like to join us next time (you don't have to be military to go! If you are military, uniform is encouraged but not required) our next visit is at 9:30am on April 20, at the Betty Dare Center.
