Roswell’s Salute To The Troops-Carry The Fallen
March 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us as we come together to show our veterans that they are not alone in their struggles, and that we appreciate the sacrifices that they and their families have went through. We are committed to doing everything that we can to end the veteran suicide epidemic that is plaguing our nations veterans. Too many of our veterans are committing suicide everyday and we are dedicated to getting them the help and resources that they deserve. They served us, now we are doing everything we can to serve them.
