The Appalachian Veteran Project and Cave Run Area Habitat for Humanity are inviting all veterans and their families to a Thank-our-Veterans-Dinner this Saturday.

Also invited are those wishing to work to put an end to homelessness and substandard housing for veterans, those committed to bringing needed services to our veterans and their families … and those who do not want any veteran “left behind.”

The event begins Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. at the Index Community Center, 1749 W. Main Street, West Liberty.

Veterans benefits representatives available to ensure veterans are receiving the maximum benefit possible.

Appalachian Veterans Project, Kentucky Habitat and the USDA Rural Housing Program will be present to help those having housing problems.

Dinner is at 6 p.m. Hear from the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs and Matthew Bradford, a US Marine who was injured in combat while serving his country.

Bradford was not supposed to live but the Lord placed him on a new mission, which is to live a life of inspiration, motivation and leave an impression on every person he interacts with. A double amputee and mostly blind, Bradford has never let his injuries define who he is or what he can do. He lives his life pushing through any limitations that he comes across. He lives by the words “No Legs No Vision No Problem.”

RSVP and additional information will be provided by contacting the following: Nicki Stacy (606) 359-5451, or Ghedra Dunn (606) 362-4962,

This dinner is a follow-up to the Operation Stand Down for the veterans in the region held this past summer in West Liberty.
