Chip is so Excited! When we return to Branson for Veterans Week this year we will be so proud to have with , us his daughter Karen, an Army veteran and grand daughter Gianna, who is currently serving in the Air Force. We’re making plans for the Rose Petal Ceremony, and of course an elegant evening at the POW/MIA Gala.
THREE GENERATIONS OF VETERANS! How great is that.
US Air Force – age 19

Without exception, if you have ever been to the Day Room, you’ve met Eddie Beesley. We met Eddie and Connie in 2005 when we were volunteers for the Welcome Home to Vietnam Veterans. Eddie had already written is book “Lucky Enough” and his mission then is as it is now; to minister and offer encouragement to those wounded warriors that find themselves feeling hopeless and helpless in their new situation.
During Veterans Week last year, many of you will remember that Eddie performed a song he wrote about his journey through some of those same feelings, when God sent him his “California Angel”. On Veterans Day at the Oak Ridge Boys Show, Soldiers Wish, partnering with the American Legion, and the Oak Ridge Boys, granted Eddie’s wish to record “California Angel”.
Just this month we received our signed copy of California Angel, as well a DVD of the Eddie Beesley Wish. Join us in wishing Eddie great success with this release. You can contact Eddie at www.lkyenuf.com (This is not a link, just cut and paste to you browser.)
