Water filters that you put a bucket. And they can do it. They can provide clean water fur on ten years three families. And all of the duel because there's no maintenance you do soak up the hope of that the Sawyer product right to the bucket and all that machinery to clean water so. We do that and gone. Part of it is is it's a veteran but organizations so it's up mostly all veterans doing it so the idea they can continue to serve after all of the military and and you know hope.

Our rules the audience boo boo who was sued to me and to go to Brower Corbett to come home slumped. Yup not so it's it's an incredible about a senator I tell every veteran it's a sight so to look into it. Not something that doesn't expire or anything like you get the letters certificate of eligibility from the VA it's good forever. Arms so now you can it was obvious first woman to be any home as far as you know live and it's so it's it's it's huge benefit like I said no money down in the order you ought to pay. Vote mortgage insurance Leo the PMI so let's sees you do you know almost always an on about how much Brian so this is.

The property you inspect food they're gonna make sure that everything is. Work ammonia mud and another word similar commitments quote good good help. But don't and there are a lot of people out there in clean let's be honest for good reason. A lot of people and on mortgage brokers are people real state who don't want to deal with the VA. Over the years as Delta Air Lines at the guy like me Rick what makes it so important whether it's regarding Richard Goodwin and go to Vegas. Someone can actually understand the process from jump. They can explain it to the people were buying your barn and house from the VA won't spooked and I think boldly because I've seen that my own only hours putting people to brilliantly run severe zone with you know.

No one knows about it. Something never Rick has talked to me about who's in Massachusetts law hardly anyone is using it. Does I think people just don't know Sonnen won't want to show to be a way for people find out so. Do you think you know veteran owned doesn't have to be wartime doesn't speak combat just has to be veteran. You know someone to serve in the military or what don't know what this benefit.

You know still we're gonna have to well set up what the Jersey you're gonna look for those who love inflatable bounce or good morning. Moon. I grew up a lot of seasons and they're not nuts you know what I think we've all known a lot of fees and allies and opponents Mexican journalists have but do about it but let's deal saying it was that it is only one auditioning army everyone else's trying to get their stuff back right there's there's no locks onto I don't mean. Keep your friends out just go mart don't vote. What sort of Catholic priests within the home to more and senior putting was a chaplain in the movie.

Trying to protect the momentum from drivel so I got your body and I tell my hair salon stricken Boeing which I think there make economy. That's perfectly rational death. Are moving on in studio. In this beautiful studio and Troy and John. Is bill Pennington threw one for the troops five K that races coming up so I'll go into the shelf. Well thank you very much and thank you for all you do for our veterans you know we can never do enough then time. And that's what drives him run for the troops. Five K is that cause who knows nothing beautiful about downtown there are no longer. But you know we have the greatest cause in the world and people are more than willing to mount supporters have a wonderful team of volunteers. And it's all about the cause and that's what we've been focusing on cents a over seven years ago announced from grace continues to grow and I'm looking for another great year this year and doing what we can and our own little circle so let's support our veterans home. She's so good news this could growing. Gallo you know. They used to be able around fairly fast and qualify for the Boston Marathon and this whole. I did develop flu like the Sar is a slowdown and I ran for homes for our troops and I was able to get a bid and and we had like 200 people show up the law can have some pancakes and and we raised like 8000 dollars income for title maybe we have something here so I contact a lot of my day grace contacts and I go hey how about this and sure and now we're looking at him. 5000 and I'm be racing in excess of 50000 dollars to grow. It's it's in both I think the most important thing that we do we focus on the cause and distill. Or issue here are or are priceless what we do is do. Give these that's what they truly deserving. It's the people who actively serve at the retirees and families it's my. Brother in law who's. Served over thirty years in the army and then went to contract work. This will be the first time in forty years and he's been able to attend anything because it's always been. He's been in Bosnia and Iraq and Afghanistan and for further. So we're thrilled he's actually got to open up the today around Naples when I first along with my sister and it'll be. Pretty emotional there's at least. Google took photos of circles when one of the states would move them to eat seafood students who went bloop to move your virtual running and all of that stuff. Yeah I would do dinners at the end of a country club and April 21 at 630. Cyrus off the six Syrian. Harm him a lot of veterans come is our guest we don't feel it's right for them to be. Painted ten something that honors them so a lot of those tables are sponsored by. You know just people like ourselves you know we keep the prices is extremely low is only four dollars a ticket and so a lot of people sponsoring table of ten for the veterans. The veterans come on as our our our guests we have. To. Beneficiaries. Actually speak about you know what impact our support has meant to them. You know the Fisher houses involved homes for our troops is involved. There's clients on farms up in Andover who runs like an. C rehab facility using horses with events and then we had prize across America in the brides are actually as to Dennison. You know and anyone who's been involved in the letting those six cost. Getting married and you know these guys make peanuts and for them the emeritus very him they wanted to do it right you know. And so we will work out with a try to show up in Andover and their we donate to two. Weddings every year and then there at the wedding ceremony they can. Can't say what it means them some of the places they served and you know the Fisher house people there and you know host our troops we have people have achieved houses. Other great stories being an independent final and C three we can help out any veteran. And so what we're doing there's a marine out in California Brandon Dobson who wants to compete at the highest level and unfortunately you losses. Basically below his knees or they're no longer with them. And that he wants a racing chair so do Snyder electric. We were able to build them a very very high end. Racing chair so now he can compete. As I told someone yesterday fate of these what these Marines wanna do they wanna be able to compete they wanna wake up in the safe. There's a reason for me to wake up no other reason for me to compete and and not a right this is help him but the rules fire other you know severely wounded. You know veterans do. Nate I can do that to horn and a. So William what they think you Roy goes in the Marine Corps welcome Ruth Smith some some of phone calls solutions and you know I don't want to vote for him. Let alone 20 for the first time you're feeling healthier marine thrown Biden quite amounts that I was what are you referred it. But whose candidate but there are actually and certainly we if you wanna go prayer card to mention Miller went on the med cruise would call. Him. Shall Sloan. But you wouldn't show tool from wasn't. That the I wanna stick would probably go there and what he's doing hill you know than oh Toyota produces fantastic and I think that. You know help promote guards like that that have that to Zaire when. You know doom them tunes to implement that desire to refer. Yeah and is it as so only the people that we're helping. It's. Join our backyard and Andover Newton wherever. We actually have a virtual run going on in Kuwait. Down this bout the same day and what we want a really it. Make sure that they're veterans around the world know that they're being supported back home. And we're also working with young ROTC students high school and college they're coming to the event as our guest. And we feel it's important same type of idea that America is behind you no matter where you go on from here. You know. That the Americans back home care about you and so that's why. As far really focus on the veterans because you know we can raise a lot of money and we've done while doing that but it is priceless quote we do. For our veterans I had a one of our first houses we helps financially support was Joey Smith. Joyce Smith came up last year flew home and I use he talked joy about once a week. And as I have heard from about ten days so I call them up and enjoy what's gone not used bill I didn't wanna bother you just has a great job. But on the way home. I had a blood clot and so we had to make an emergency landing so I won't be able to compete this year in the archery like he wanted to. But he woody said to me was at least a major event. And you put a price tag on that and you know like Kevin do boys down in Rhode Island. He shows up with is his Stanley and he. And he was a stunt that Andover Massachusetts would do this for him. But it's it's not necessarily. Doing it for them people wanna help and they have a good feeling when they come to the event and makes them feel good and I've always believes that you know. For example ovals great new year and you can sleep over them but considerably softer so broke through what was wrong. We targeted. John Doherty Georgia and so you are okay we've Loria who Somalia very low wage doesn't. Feel John John has been very vocal and very involved on our back on some great garner and he was very adamant about us going independent helping out young veterans locally as well as around the world than John is. They're very good friend of mine and I was very supportive. It. When my kids who is ten veterans events he made sure that they were recognized you know still walking around in diapers stolen signs of grandma and grandpa. And at the end John's a great guy and I was down at T it's. American legion and he was there and I wanted to make sure that we that the elephant out of room right away. And we walked in there with our tax returns and I go here it is guys there's a lot of different you know charities in this world. Feel free to look at us look at what we do you know and and that was great it really. That and Arabs. Transparency. And what we do bring in the soldiers they're bringing them prize there I its own farms. They're there having a acts that day of the dinners and actually having it to be a program for vets as I and so farms and Andover that ends at 4 o'clock. And then. 4 o'clock stay clean up put on a coat and tie it. No come to the dinner that night won't so you know that's and that's why we get such tremendous support and donations. When we talk about who is in that we talked about people donating people there's an awful lot of charity so there's there's people who really do good work. Well what fraud so I see you. We're really vote. What you guys are doing their due to this is something tangible people and see exactly where it's going and I think that's happened to transparency retirement isn't just for money coming in what emissions. And I think when you seem like cal talked whether it's fraud or mismanagement or just. Good intentions were or mock it would you. When you put a they would recommend that people give local. You know whether it's in Massachusetts are really locally that you guys have you seen that when people committing the exceed. When you've been to see that these homes are breathing disease that people you're supporting the stories. It must just bring for the people who've done all the work it just must mean everything to you. Oh yeah it's truly does that mean. I remember when we were helping just Bouchard now Grammy mass. And a lot of these soldiers are so pride for my mother's memory inside I understand how pride fully I always in the 10 yeah that and that's after a pack. And Josh who shot and emotionally wasn't able to come to the event you know a lot of these guys have peaks and valleys and you know he looked at himself as a handicapped person you know and so I arranged met with the fire department out Graham B mass and I was stunned that day of the walk run. Sixty people from Grammy and mask came on buses. And it's just who shards mother sue. Was stunned issue is just cry and her. Dries out as she got off that bus because Lindsay posters of just Bouchard didn't know he wasn't there. We didn't forget and we you know the fire department came and they out you know a lot of division in full gear you know and eventually. Do this some other you know we won't take all the credit new homes for our truth but Josh is doing extremely well enough. That's who you know it's all this and his parents yet and it was all tight end his parents stayed at the Fisher house. While Josh was getting better and then homes for our troops stepped up. And can provide him how says he can move move and so he wouldn't be so dependent on others these what these. Servicemen and women pay him. Yes I'm cable I can do this stuff but to give them a helping hand in times of Mueller. You've got fired upon. And little wind according to them that we will. Internationally. Some credit because they'll look at the rubble and it's useful tool dad says it's funny you bring that up or losers who incidents we didn't dress rehearse this. But we're actually read keep an eye is still farms is working. Stretching their program out the first responders now. Because he says this of brotherhood so. Where were you all go through a lot more without them once I saw it doesn't personally I don't know you don't. The question. When it comes to the two peoples still registered to people commendable here where we're keen wit and letting go to run for the troops I Qaeda com what what he recommends it. Well it is what 23 unless there's been a little bit of confusion I'm on the website but it's this race menu. Dot com slash us troops five K all information is on there at the dinner the pancake breakfast. The walk and Iran it's all on there what's amazing is now is that. Although people have a tendency to Texan email and there's not a lot of facetime nowadays but will we find is that. 85%. Of the people registering for this event are joining a team of fellow like people. At all you know we have we have. Hat and I'm drawn a blank by yanks fitness center and an end or they have a team.

You know so they go all meet and mingle and and it builds camaraderie for. Basically you are promoted is that when I go talk these businesses in these groups that this is a corporate outing without any work for you guys. That's great.

When veterans will go fought loose and then flow we don't. One. Run for the troops though it's gonna open feud over one people who torn from its colorful Exel. That's the world according to joy on our team next week. We're about to sound complex world show cohost John McDonald makes me and you can reach us pull us. Final email a sound off in the UK you know. At Gmail or comment on just it's on a familiar tale Brenda today we're joined by bill Pennington for the run for the troops five K that's kind of beyond. April 23. What there on April 21 step up and Andover sort of a little bit of old about the race self. Though before we before we run out of time. But as well plugged the had deployed the website one more time. Kind of give us a little little quick summary of everything. Okay that's race menu. Dot com slash troops five K and I just like to sell though it's it's a race or run out. I would say over 50% of the people actually walk in neighboring strollers dogs. Friends and family and you know you don't have to be a serious ass later runners that it can. Participate in this event and we do a tremendous. I think. Job focusing on the veterans we actually have a huge veterans tend we do veterans ceremony reality country and western band playing. Afterwards. Pancake breakfast and then after do. Before and during the pancake breakfast is open. And also we're gonna have Barbeque and cornbread and all these activities going on Blackhawk helicopters schedule in about 830. And it's just. I think you'll get as much out of it as the people that were honoring. See the entire route is lined with with flies and all the different branches we have a huge American flag thanks so balls on crane at the finish line. And my father's flag will be actually flag pole at the finish line. This year. And and so it's some and we're gonna do a lot of good then you know you can actually talk to the people who were receiving. Our support you know homes for our troops who will be there bars across America will be at the that the dinner you know this to Fisher house will be there. I and I assume farms. Yeah so it's a great way to really connect with the military and if you have any military friends and family I think they'll. Biondi and be recognized. That's a dinner last year which is to shares on April 21. And Vietnam that was sitting at a table with a friend of mine. And he says bill this guy hasn't stopped crying all night. And this is the first time. He was he's ever been thanked and recognized. So a lot of these guys have opportunity get rid of some of the bad memories and hopefully this will be done. They better memory for them so. And so we try to do were flying people in from all around the country. Do. You know show them that America cares. Joey Smith who I keep mentioning generally has been known so well. Two years ago he to a fourteen hours and hand controlled vehicles to attend the event. Along with a service dog Jake and and when he hears stories like that are given to boys come up with his family and Chris Gomes who received a house last year and who actually works in the VA I think down in New Bedford. As the administrator doubted ourselves officer and yeah I could and then to see. How he has changed when he received his home. With his boys and and things I was down at. The ribbon cutting ceremony and he's probably lost 4050 pounds and he looks fantastic. Because I believe they get rid of that. Dependence on other people they never work I'm sure they weren't brought up that way. Don't John in the army of them Marines or whatever surface presser and two because they have they wanna serve others and what I always here is that it was are honored to serve them. For them to resume Siva thank you is very difficult form Chris has a good example is definitely do is walk he's he's he's he's he's facing southeast. Really given back and critical. Yeah Chris went around the speaker of the some of our you know sponsors he spoke at the down there you know he's he's paying it forward and that's that this is why we like to encourage some of the veterans. To attend it's not necessarily about them it's about the people that are in the shadows. If we can inspire some of those homeless vets and some of those folks who are really struggling to come and attend the event may we can break through and and help them. And and so it's it's it's it's like I said how are repeated again it's not a when these service people come they got a look about paying it forward and Chris Gomes is is tremendous example of paying it forward Joseph Smith comes up from North Carolina. He's always to receive this house he has nothing really the benefit but he understands that this will help. People and and what I've heard from JoAnne from others so did good yeah his fellow soldiers and when. They heard Joey got injured are going Kevin the boys got injured they were worried about them they wanted to make sure you is all right. So if the soldiers and injured somewhere around the world and they know they have these resources back home. I think it really helps hold the town you know the whole group and so that's. There's a lot of little hidden messages and stories that you feel really analyze what's been going on for seven years up and handover. This really pretty special on the volunteers I can't say enough about them. We've got yeah I've I've lived in new froze 25 years I believe we have the cream of the crop. A volunteers. You know people who have done things on their own for different organizations. And an MMA and it runs really well tough there's some but I'm fixer I just tell logo and I'm just a conductor. And I just waved at the time and things happened.

Leave he soldier from. North Carolina's received a home he'll be speaking in some of these guys to speak really well like Chris Gomes for so long as it's like anyone out there you know some people can. Knew there was an audience of 500 in front of me I wouldn't be talking like this title speaks to his days as an extensive.
