AboutFace-USA partnered with Bearfoot Ranch to host and honor the Army Reserve 642nd Brigade Unit. We provided a little bit of everything, from education about equine therapy to a BBQ and a Forsyth County Special Olympic athletes skills show. Even the soldiers were given an opportunity to ride.
Bearfoot Ranch was honored by the Army Reservists raising their first flag. Volunteers from AT&T Pioneers donated and raised the flag pole recently.
Joe and Carol of AboutFace-USA with Colonel Richar and Major Best with the 642 Brigade.
Colonel Richar talks to the civilians, like us and the special olympic athletes and their parents, and answered questions from the audience. he reminded all to respect our memories of 9/11 and to share them so we never forget. He answered one athlete’s concerns about able-bodied people forgetting about the disabled when so much fear is on their minds. He said that even then disabled people were helped to get out, that as adults we don’t forget to help one another(A very touching moment).
