We are thankful for our freedom, and we are humbled by the cost. Today we honor those who protected all that was fought for and the men and women who gave it all. Thank you veterans, you are our true patriots! Hug them, thank them, teach your children of their sacrifices….today and all the days to come.
We are honored to work with Green House homes, including those specifically serving Veterans, who create meaningful lives for our nation’s heroes at every stage of life. Cheryl Kennedy is a daughter whose father, Paul, lives at Liberty House at VA Illiana in Danville, IL. When asked about the impact of living in a Green House home for a veteran, she says:
“ The more I learn about The Green House project, the more I am awed by what it offers veterans like my father – a beautiful, real home environment with access to VA facilities and services and, most important, care 24/7. Important for my father, was the privacy of his own room and the comfort level of his natural connection with the other veterans. For him, sitting at the table with these men was similar to his experience of sitting at the table with his Friday night crew at the American Legion. Dad readily shares how lucky he is to call the Liberty House his home!”
