Com we also have a sort of thing program in 35 major neck blew us cities across the country now. How do you have won here in Denver and also how Warren can call that is hurting the most open for everyone better and Vietnam veteran for life. Wow. Okay soil. So I'm not so Smart as I thought there was about what you do because that's even as much as I knew you were doing that's. Goodness gracious that's a lot of involvement in the community. Well that's really what we're about you know they're veteran third he conceded she can't. Change we can mean construction and interactions with like minded individual. And can show our community that you know. Veterans how cool thing we can get them out get them involved to really help them transition back into their commitment. Sure now. If you've got some examples I know Annette I'm kind of doing this to you. And without warning but I'd get some examples of some projects you've been involved with here and in the front range and in the metro area. Papa wouldn't so I'm really excited. September 11 it's not too many veterans and Americans across the country and very important days. On the they can be a bit sad that can amendment so we'll try to change your narrative. Are you know I didn't do it campaign so. And I am in and around here in the area in Denver where they have a large in this project. On September 10. Near Denver technology program and knowledge is power program for bamboo collegiate high school. I'll Morgan Hill and on the human he probably about 35. I better not moonlight and doing things to help ensure that your mission at war. And actually that's Saturday for a lot of movies on the power can already strained. Open to revitalize there. They're trail system won't make it official crucial things come out Jed York the warmth of our friends there is absolutely try to figure it out in action news. We get to me somehow so people wanna comment I'm not they can check it out check if Michigan can download like you failed. So sedan to tell me I mean this this is great stuff and and I know from from know on a couple of people that are involved what it means to them to do this in the end you know showed their support for the come community tell you. Tell me why people sign up to do this quite or does it did to veterans and sign up for looking for. Well what we've found thoroughly search and what I can personal effect from my experience from the truth about. I sympathize with how many veterans when they knew the military they find that common mission. I'll bet that content appropriation is no longer there when you're out and then what we like to call the real world now. So we've provided framework for you you can't join hands with those people were like minded and won a major difference. I'm not true that while it's on method because the challenger Al Assad war period. Should go like war leave my upon our uniforms so we're not done for these double off at all. I know you know from my own experience I was in the air force a long time ago from 763. B two and I've had the pleasure talking to Korean War vets in Vietnam vets in World War II vets and and even when I first started your World War I vets were still alive with him. I to a generation. It always comes back to that this thing I missed most whenever I. You know got out a winner retired this thing that I missed most was that sense of of camaraderie with them through the men and women that I served wish it do we we all feel that when we leave and and I guess here do you give to renew some of that. Absolutely new and more importantly I can do if you certain things camaraderie. With members of your community you want to earn shoot really helps you transition back into this hole is not a surprise. Yep tends NC that's the thing I love most about its mission continues is not only do the veterans you know those who served in uniform benefit. But the community gets an even better understanding of what it means to serve and it you know what military is all about so I'd act. I think drafts. You know everybody wins in that situation. Tired and wore them. Actually consider your mentioned in the blue shirt. That's come our trademark that's that's what we're about old people feel former blue shirt on the Baltimore out there and make a difference. We welcome you to get wanted to know the situation. Could come up to third what probably you can make it out over the weekend. Good luck to anyone who look signature involved my project and the jets now and maybe we have. We have all different after all different type of people knew a lot. I'll a lot of pain and building construction. Boom you know that found some members of mutations in the fact that. And from Obama cited numbers are individuals should mom each insurance and activity. But the majority of creeping back equally as important thing we have company for everybody preaches love didn't chat about our approach. So this doesn't all just happened no immunity to you know it takes what it takes a lot of organization it takes. Certainly a budget to pull this all laugh. 111000. Plus some veterans. Have they have signed up to be a part of this and you need to support that effort so. I'm I'm certain there are ways that people can support what it is you do stay you know non veteran seven to our veterans like anybody that wants to. Perhaps a make financial donation or some other way to be involved there's an opportunity right. I pull out toward 100% donor funded. Both about what you've been involved with some interest in making a contribution to boot directly. Falcons veteran and helping our veterans phenomenon collection where you knew you had to capability mission controllers. In domain now. What's your favorite project you've been involved with so far. So they've all had there they're their own needs. You know. Point so far on the court challenge and I think that's why did you keep coming back. Com don't really I'm his biggest problem but Ruben Pardo slows down actually what he called NAFTA opponent every year. We try and suddenly five veterans from the off the country. Pumped one major city the first moved in 2016. In Detroit and just concluded. A couple of months ago. Our Atlanta Georgia mountains only 75 different murder for a permanent move each. I'll meet sir warned should you be lit. Project after project after project you don't get a lot of movement a lot of work it's actually kind of likened him to poignant song and in some regards. But it didn't change the fact that you try highly motivated individuals from across the country with future new different background. Impact it has been happening just. Seven days I'm. They're really changing lives on the Italian people try not to think symbolic gesture a more information on the web site on the tunnels are definitely open wouldn't be in Los Angeles can actually do well really try to not put off a chain he didn't really try to.

Right back here to Colorado veterans resource show Labor Day weekend and you just choices of allowed things to do that today including this hour in your he your weekend is great we can't thank you enough for that. The show by four and about. You know our favorites the veterans of Colorado and did it from time we can read it to our toes in the water outside Colorado the word about organizations did that actually heard or doing things that are helping us and I I was reading an article I think it was in the post some assurance that last week an article about but gentlemen I've known for a lot of you. A remarkable guy that I've known for a very long times almost since he was involved in. Then the crash of that united flight and Iowa all those years ago you'll remember those of you who live here. The flight that left Denver headed for Chicago doing and crash landed in our way and injury survives doomed. You know went through many years of recovery and as you can imagine student even veteran tour listening you survive something like that. Bill is certainly PTS deal that we didn't know what it was called them right there PT SD and it ended and in what does that all mean what why did I survive right so. Jerry is live through all that and now he's going to be doing Iraq and across Colorado from one side to the other and his fight to raise money. For this organization that we're gonna visit with here on the program today and that's what led me to a million. Great simple is with us and as I told Greg on the phone earlier true if it's important Jerry gets good enough by me paws for purple hearts Greg welcome news show it's great to have some time with you today. What rhetoric I appreciate it is really an honor to be here and thanks so much clear what types. So. I side started did you middle little bit too to you know learn about the organization and what you do this is really scary. Remarkable there there are bad you know hey it's obviously we've had a other organizations on the air here and a program that talked about. I matching veterans with some with the canines but nothing like this are pretty remarkable organization. Who watched what we view that's a little bit different than the others is let's start recognizing there's a tremendous shortage of Serb response. In the world today show but I would sure you're awake she would trash some of the other one more critical element shouldn't when you talk about fractions of posttraumatic stress. Which you did allude to I would cherry east's. But not a veteran but of course she's gone to repair genetic situation and he's learned to cope with the act. So I threw thing is might still lighting can get Julie very good works like for organizations like us. What we did is instead of just 71 dog go cheap eight. Certain person to be raised should work out a year after two years we actually were pouring dirt veterans day and computer training of those stocks. And you won't sign a professional trainers so what happens this will get about she achieved yet trench. Every single dog big Christian program and frankly that is our brilliant magical what we do that there's a little bit different than everybody else so. All of which turn on and national code ought to be true agent come lot of ties and animals such a way it would just change all the wet. I there'd just wonderful creatures and they can chaebol lot of liars. Even if you're only working hard trying we each other and that's true how what we do differently and it's so that's why we can't market watcher is always good about. Which warriors LP warriors and other veterans are helping one another and to get through the air posttraumatic stress. I was. I was equally fascinated to learn a little bit about doctor Bonnie bird guarantee and and virgin university. Seems. Seems to be a pretty amazing person. Oh gosh yes she. She really has side church a remarkable thing and actually has gotten so much tougher the head start community can and she just basically try and thought I used the word. If I it's I don't you lightly but she's the matriarch of the servers are industry. Basically in the 1970s. You had military working Darche. Do you at dodger or working true or. Probable leash he hadn't yet came out and let this guy got tight sanctions. Action you recognize it was a lot more action happened pension which he ended up doing worse creating this shut industry we're now you have blog sure ought to Islam diabetes shear detection so I can't certain they're really remarkable and we're just only beginning to cap and GB. Remarkable qualities of these animals so. You know I've got I've got a couple of dogs in my house serves as long as I can remember I've always had two or three run and around the floors and get in the way and NB in the first two you know greet me when I come home from a deal work in and people even with their own experiences right here in the office all day and you feel a little beat down and you walk in the house and there's that smiling face and that leg and tail and they don't care they just little love onion and immediately you kind of view or get out of your phone can you feel a whole lot better so imagine that times the Brazilian forward. A veteran who's been serving on the deployment overseas and has been in harm's way and has been there with with a working dog perhaps. It or even nod but just that companionship. And that unconditional. Love what that means. I've seen it so I did you live it so you know it. Did you know at the beginning it was like oh come on their pets button and their little bit more now. Absolutely I mean we each HR dog chug very seriously did you look short. But it's very unique chair duration contrary each one of sanctions and you have to have a very low. Such trouble spots and low reactionary response. And we should work that is that they can't change wolf and dark in one direction and all the sudden the veteran thinking left in a bad situation. Thought perhaps it's clear mobility impaired. They might end up are getting pulled over or calling. And that can be dangerous situation Ford and so obviously one of the things we would like to do this try to get those veterans as much help it's impossible declared. Actually that's it's it's all about training them at an early age I need him beat this very unique quality checked god. And then there are more than a companion because they actually perform a lot of server central region veterans especially. I want your mobility impaired they can open doors check out jeez. I'm you know crutches or track we were at Iraqis changes last night ma am on a hard charge throughout the first all. Have to actually go out like that perhaps bigger danger elbow actually ran an intranet Richard compilation of the catchers met non BC had one of our veterans. Ansari. Because this ignited some Serra wasn't there to see that a bit the place went crazy. They actually DAN word weird got the video will have a poster here shortly today besides what's exciting you really did enjoy it I think everybody shot enjoyed your show word how to really get back through it and perhaps more try and but the bottom line is Leonardo lodge eight pre game controller that an act that game last night one of the dodge. The woman for directions and try to scratch. They hadn't there's another sergeant major and major presence down takes up the college and did you children there and match. Favored nation seem like very mundane things occurred retribution. Suffering as this tornado is what they are very severe back injury and I like hanging it's degenerative. Let simple motion Judy out. Do you charge traumatic crescendo that pain dimension stimulate other things in Indian mind. So why are not thought they are just cheap share proposal I thought well it's wonderful turn of course everybody loved major because he. He took a look. Very catchy like GQ RJ here in the match got a whole lot of bad that we had to get a much smaller ones so he's carrying a little sloppy game all around the ball. I FF and everybody just thought it. That is awesome paws for purple hearts warriors helping warriors this. Is organization. That this. You know for awhile now mean to get over a decade under your belt so you didn't you know you can pretty good at dissing him pretty well known. Look like he actually our niche. It's been you know there's any time that sort out its struggle. Hard to execute the right people are not finding the right sort of structure chair Napster he would donate a little bit of money here and there from what we and that's the only words. They actually are littered over those last ten years and then didn't really got to count act and how much they were doomed for a remarkable things weren't five locations nationally would mirror Washington DC. San Antonio Texas. San Diego California championship stroke California and also all the way up and share bank slashed up. And that's Denver Colorado here's why in part shares Lou really love to be here. Shanghai and in 2000 they can eat. So the web site for those of you listening if you want to I can follow along as discrete and are talking here if you go to paws for purple hearts dot org you get to the web so beautiful website really easy. To manage and then work your way through an explorer like to work served an awful lot. And you'll see you'll see a lot of things that they do you see their success the numbers of people that they've helped you'll see how you can help by becoming. A volunteer or about becoming a donor can't construct read this one number that I saw in here because this is this to me is really. Highlights what it is that you do different differently and it's it's this. A box called the veterans new mission and it says veterans enrolled in the warrior canine therapy programs learn to train future service starts brother injured comrades. Every paws for purple hearts puppy. Celts forty to sixty of our nation's brave for years before being assigned permanently to a single veteran for the remainder of the dog's life. That to me. That's the great gift of this I mean you're certainly the veteran who will now have this service start to aid them that's wonderful but the forty to sixty that have been helped along the way good you know good our new. This. Are matched the actual real magic go to. This methodology. Malware that we do it were a little bit of overhead because we have to absolutely. Certain which trained dogs checked other shall send it out. To somebody and it will be grace in their home while we bring the veteran and war. You actually transport the dogs out to the veteran facilities should file which is really get strange actually that you can get out to a lot of B Morse senior proud veterans that are out there are a lot of our Vietnam veterans who never got. I need necessary attention and time. Just a word yet it's those people's well so it really isn't unique process and so far worse we're very proud. So right now I'm no way I can nomad Jim you know you and I haven't touched on all the good that the guards do specifically with things like alcoholism and drug abuse and then and homelessness just by dude you know be in this companion weekend in certainly worst of all which is suicide. Did is as it do you have enough dogs but you don't have enough dogs true Farina so you need people to help training where it. We yeah. We actually your your group definitely hitting the nail on the head there are so one of those things that. We really would like cheating. Anchored down market says did interviews suggest it's a very challenging to get that light dark. And and get the cheers and some. And now I have no you know eight or eight jump out that that's at the last minute which can happen should and you know it's not. So the end the world because those Dutch certainly can do wonderful things. How what we get those words we are trying to get them through as quickly as chops and I would shake it is a challenge for us to do some black. But shortages dodge is. A bit of it and I note some your listeners and actually achieve shaky you know the shelters just chock full blown yeah nagging injury. Well unfortunately. We don't know what we're getting with that yeah yeah we've Q1 our veterans we have programs for veterans what would those talks. But I think and should get that highly trying and very specialized service start. What takes a little bit extra effort and I'm quite a bit of money believe it or not and what she made that substantial investment. I you really don't want to lose its attack at the last minute because of something that you didn't know bludgeon that dogs yeah she. So we do have a a little bit of challenge we tend to use our chamber region's post about specifically and that would media Labrador Retriever and a Golden Retriever my mainly because they have the physical size they're very intelligent. That they are just lovable affable and bearish weekend action by the addition to change large very quickly and very touched shank redemption okay had a chance I would encourage people to go out on our web site you watch story called the Arlington Angel.
