Greetings Neighbors!

As a veteran I get asked often by neighbors about how best to support our vets. Well, here's another really great way to do just that: The Midwest US Valor Games will be held in Chicago August 23-25. See more info below and on the attached flyer.

And, whether you can make it or not, I urge you to generously share your hard earned dollars with contributions to the cause of our wounded warriors AND their families. This is part of the real and hidden cost of military action - our veterans and their families keep on paying the price of service well after their return to our soil. We are obligated to support our sisters and brothers who have served on our behalf.

As always, questions? Please ask. Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com

The Valor Games Midwest is an introductory adaptive sports competition for veterans and service members with physical and visual disabilities.

Hosted by the Chicago Park District, the 2016 event will take place August 23-24 and is open to any individual with a disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs including amputation, spinal cord injuries, visual impairment, traumatic brain injury, permanent orthopedic injuries, and those with post-traumatic stress disorder. The Valor Games Midwest will only be open to residents from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Unable to lower your flag because it is on a fixed pole?

Attaching a black ribbon to the top of a U.S. flag is an acceptable alternative for flags that cannot be lowered to half-staff. See picture.
