Last Friday (4/21/17) Sharon and I met Chaplain Thompson (WTB, HHC) and nine couples in Seguin at the SS American Memorial aka Lazy U Ranch. It was a perfect day to be outside especially in such a beautiful setting. The property has the Guadalupe River on one side and Lake Placid on another. When we arrived, the couples were already a “Marriage Wellness” session with the chaplain. This gave us the opportunity to meet and visit with three veterans who help run and maintain the property. You see, the owner has dedicated the property to helping those who are or have served their country. To visit their website Click Here or go to ‘Related Links’ above.
The chaplain gave everyone a short break, long enough to grab donuts or kaloches and a beverage and to say hello to us before heading back for more words of wisdom. Lunch was Bill Miller Barbecue chicken and brisket. WOW! what a treat! There was another session following lunch then everyone was on their own. They had the option of staying and enjoying the weather, kayaking, playing games or leaving. Ben Kavnli, Olympic Outdoor Center, San Marcos was at the river helping all who were adventurous enough to kayak. Ben has generously provided the kayaks, help and/or instructions at our events for several years now. It’s so humbling to see how these warriors handle their ‘New Normal” and help each other. Rather puts our minor aches and pains into perspective.
Special Thanks to Ben for his generosity. To check out his website Click Here or go to “Related Links” at the top of this page.
