The Folsom Veterans Day Parade was held on Monday November 11, 2019. It was a great Local event, supported by the residents of Folsom. Your local Veterans thank you for your support.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help. Check our resources section.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Local Veterans if you have a eligible campaign medal join our ranks. Contact us through this site.
