Rest in Peace, US Army Major Angwin (Ret) ~ A true "Hero at Home," he helped the VSN w/the annual BBQ from the beginning and knew it was important to honor our Veterans by having a community led / non-partisan event to say, “We appreciate you; we want you to feel safe; we want to honor you; you are part of this community, and we have your back.”
