As you’re probably aware, the fund-raising platform that we’ve developed at Veterans Legacy goes by the moniker of Veterans Legacy Patriot Partners.
With the seeming explosion of various right wing groups that have developed in the last few years that co-opt the term Patriot into their names, the discussion of how our program would be viewed came up at a recent Board of Directors meeting.
It finally happened – we got a tractor!!! Well it’s true we owe our soul to the Company Store but it’s sure nice to
have an excellent piece of equipment. In short, it’s a 48hp. Branson, 4 wheel drive with a frontend loader. We
also stepped up and got a 6ft. brush mower which has made the mowing process much more efficient (check
out the new drone footage and see some of Bob O’Brien’s mowing expertise from the air). We could sure use some help in paying the tab at the Company Store – your donations to Veterans Legacy would be much appreciated. Donate Here
