1st Annual Rogue Valley veteRUN: Giving Thanks to OUR Neighbors Who Risked Their LIves

My Dad didn’t want to talk about the WWII experiences he had as a Major in the Army overseas until his death was drawing nigh. PTSD support was not available back then. But, let me tell you, when anyone thanked him for his service or shared comaraderie, something lit up inside him. His memories haunted him and stressed his body with no assistance to decompress or acknowledge the haunting horrors. I have often wished that his aging process would have been easier. My aging process is easier because of Dad and countless others. I am grateful.

Today we are so fortunate to have activities to support our vets. Many services are needed for the individuals who have been of service to protect US, You and Me. They all have stories, some being shared, some stowed away forever, too painful to relive.

Something very special is happening Oct. 14 in Central Point to support OUR vets. Lauren Trantham, who rode 10,000 miles to raise $50,000 in funds for sex trafficking survivors, is assisting to get this milestone established in a memorable way that will become tradition in southern Oregon.

Running and contributing are ways to lend visibility of community appreciation and support to OUR vets. Participation and donating are compassionate actions that make a practical difference in OUR vets’ lives.

Supporting the 1st Annual Rogue Valley veteRUN is an honoring of our neighbors who were willing to give their lives for our freedom. It is a beautiful contribution to make their lives visible and acknowledged, supported and cared about. Contributing sends a most welcomed heartfelt message. Help them in their healing process.
