Sheridan Wyoming Veterans and Families Roundup

 The purpose of this event is to not only recognize those Heroes located in Sheridan, Wyoming, but to recognize and support those located throughout the State of Wyoming, regionally in the Western United States as well as nationally.  This event is designed to recognize the dedication and sacrifice of our Veterans, deployed members, their families and friends!  Heroes may be located in Sheridan, Wyoming one day; then relocate to a Montgomery, Alabama the next…It is imperative we support all Heroes throughout our great Nation!

This three-day event will focus on various support agencies and resources available to assist our Veterans with such issues as:  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), deployment, disabilities, financial aid and to the various VA and VSO organizations.  In addition, we desire to have the citizens of the Western Rocky Mountain Region recognize the opportunities that exist to assist our Heroes who have sacrificed so much.   There will be a number of fundraising events in support of our Heroes to raise financial support for three non-profit VSO’s and ultimately our Heroes: Time of Remembrance, Wyoming Family Readiness Groups and Hope4Heroes.  The weekend will culminate in a Sunday Memorial Service, breakfast and “A Time of Remembrance” to remember and honor all of our Heroes and their families.
