Franken Munro wahpeton Colorado zone and our Colorado military history this week. On the Colorado veterans resource show. It's the Colorado veterans resource show right here at crews in 1430 armored Crandall hosted the program and always a pleasure to spend time with few here. Any chance we get doing things by four and about veterans you know how are strongly we have believed in that over the years and continue to believe in that didn't. This program is it really that it's by Ford about veterans not only do provide veterans resource information benefits information and the like but we tell you what's going on in the community for veterans as well went. Since the day they opened in fact today even this museum open they deny your radio show that dale after museum. Which was a great treat for me I've been up a couple of times and I'm talking specifically about the Broomfield and veterans memorial museum. And Dave Lewis and Lou more with the summer program today hey don't tell us. Bilbray thank you see is four and were good guys. Reiterated it is a pleasure to have you here Dave let's have them not assume that everybody listening knows about the place and and so what don't we start or give a little history about this museum of. He broke for America memorial museum was started brace for more war two veterans are reliving it and they grew real look at time. And they you know they have some artifacts from all the stories to share and they just couldn't do you know what what's gonna happen here it's as real as we believe that you deserved. It has decided to assist sort of hold museum. And does this is another Lebanon but around 2000 and actually started using the 2001. The end it's located in the old may be dealt with Eisenhower library. In Broomfield. And and it's that time mr. girl putting a little room. And since says time has grown to work to look we have a whole entire push for a video of the building. It is it is really a remarkable place in the end. You know I think what would fascinates me the most about it is it's made up of a lot of artifacts and items from folks in the community it's surprising what people have in their possession. No actually they have more stuff than we can handle. Is that right who have yeah yeah. Deep VP I suspect you do get a lot of people locked him up to the door saying hey do you want. So yes we do it. The fact we've finally had to put up assigned to please do not least open the door. I. Think that's a typical that the so and so Lou tell me how you came about being involved with this group. So I would. Let Hillary and they were looking for somebody to be a treasure the new organization. So I get recruited them and that kind of opening night. But I really enjoy it it's good it's a good group of individuals in this this program to do are quite exciting. I'm very interesting Cilic eventually become. Patient if you well. Church has and you know I think show one of the one of the highlights of what you do there at at the museum is the little gatherings. You know the coffee's worth folks come in and share their. Experiences their stories and you're welcome to sit in them and listen in to be part of the conversation that you know conversations always a good thing. You that we simply do what we call C agencies were just talking conversation twice a lot for example we have won this month. Far this Saturday two things. And that's. In the week we bring people ended murder very understanding to this general political and they're veterans sort of attack Israel folks just have been essentially stories. For example if you with a few months ago we had a lady there corporate voluntary war to. You her story was purely a string them last. Two weeks ago I guess we did three female. The risk that the ladies there have been in the military they were telling their story. You know there was extremely interest rates so we we invite people in the community come and join us opinion does have a look up in the door isn't just just enjoy it. I suspect if so if folks what doomed the endured the word may be surprised to see them through the breadth of the collection there. Where they were talking you know civil war through today right. Yes that's correct. And we try to continually these they can refine. We're still growing and we're still learning how to be a real museum. Yeah yeah. Well lets you know it's an Anthony teach in school. But because I don't work there were about to volunteer. Yeah that sort of. Yeah that that's really kind of the the finding its its what I love about everybody mean. Most of the folks who listening know about you know my involvement in creation of the car at a free memorial auditorium in in you know it's the same kind of an idea it's a real grass roots folks that are just simply because their hearts in it and you know what I think that makes them the play Smart plays and in yours is well even that more exciting bit it's just people that really care about it. Yeah and I think there's a lot of camaraderie among the volunteers we have Serb colonel I think it's 35. Volunteers. They're kind of rotate and do the show what kind of been to deal military role yet. Sure sure now you know I'm near its worst what we're bring in three days in. We remote airport yet so I was here for super do you allow Marines dinner do you just let him visit ever saw some. Stuff. But there. That the rape of winter flying missiles there. I FF FF FF that's a look at what food and. It is you can gather listening into the conversation and all of this this goes on I promise you at the museum as well there's. There's there's some bid doesn't take very long for a bunch of veterans to be together to start to pitch in impose punitive. Love some of no return outdoor we've taken we you would have. Others from our donation but both of bubble yeah they're they're there is they've done a fight is airforce Marines. So army. That it. Let's let this week we will provide them supporting a success. Luke Luke tell me about your your service and you're you're retired colonel tell me about your service. I spend a lot of my years in the strategic air command. Major aircraft that flew it to be picked to do. Flew over mom and he had a lot of Cold War flights. And then I ended up. In the systems command and actually give a lot about play after retired from the air force who worked for IBM. The bill does stuff that can do those. They go bubbled up there. It's nice yeah is that a good life when she's. My in my career rescind the in the air force that was a load master Fulton into too much or 00119. Jeanette from 130. OK so I flew a modified 130. I was doing radio in Guam and flew modified 130 with the weather squadron million to a typhoon in the whole world. Did it once and survive didn't didn't see any need to do really don't serve. As soon as I felt like I would let you know that when you go to repaired and returned to restore reason Deborah Russell regulator to let us. So folks listening who's who would like to come to the museum for south let's tell them for sure where you're out. We're at twelve guard center in Broomfield Colorado.
