Friends of Veterans BBQ

Posted: Updated:

            Veterans and active military members came together today for the first annual Friends of Veterans Barbeque at Trinity Homes to celebrate Independence Day a few days early.

            Friends of Veterans is a local program designed to bridge the gap between the military today and the military of yesterday. 

            The group typically hosts events around key military holidays to help those veterans who don't have family nearby.

             "The veterans love this.  You can see it in their faces.  You see smiles that you usually don't see when you come into this home," said Andrew Magathan, President of Friends of Veterans.

            "This is not a country club," said Vietnam War Veteran Mickey O'Brien.  "They are here for a reason and they don't have anybody except these four times a year when somebody comes in and does something special like this."

                There are 36 veterans living at Trinity Homes.
