FISH & American Legion Speaker Series


The 6th Annual Armed Forces Celebration lived up to the hype. Sadly, the Kansas winds prevented the Army’s Golden Knight Skydiving Team to perform, the KC-135 Refueler was not able to land and a few military helicopters were not able to attend due to the winds.

2 amazing men received services dogs and FISH surprised 2 wonderful ladies with mobility scooters that served our country, a Vietnam era Marine Lt. Col and a Cold War Marine. These life-changing moments made every ounce of energy exerted and time spent making this event happen worth it. You can see more pictures and videos here: Click on the image to watch short video.

Golf Tourney
