PAWS FOR VETERANS: A Tremendous Cause for America's Heroes!


Just in time for Veterans Day, 
I want to share a wonderful 
cause that benefits the selfless, 
brave men and women who
have served our great country.

Saturday November 8, 2014 saw bikers, Vets and their supporters from around the area converge upon American Veteran Post #34 in Palm Bay, Florida for the annual Paws for Veterans "Paws Run and BBQ" fundraiser. As the longtime drummer of Burnt Toast — a good-time, golden oldies band that believes in, appreciates, respects and supports our American service men and women, I was honored and humbled for us to have been invited to perform at the event. Alright, "Blue Suede Shoes" — ah-one, ah-two, ah-one, two, three, four!

A tremendous cause, indeed!
For more than 20 years, Paws for Veterans has been dedicated and committed to providing our true national heroes with the medical help that they so desperately need (and greatly deserve) while simultaneously saving the lives of dogs that would otherwise face euthanasia. Simply put, this mighty mission rescues animals from "Doggie Deathrow" and unites them with Veterans — loving new owners who will care for them properly, and will use them for a variety of valuable purposes.

It was heartwarming to see the enormous crowd that showed up for this year's event — kids, parents, musicians, bikers, Vets and vendors galore — all enjoying a day of fun, games, give-aways and delicious barbecue, while supporting a worthwhile cause. A runaway success, to be sure.

I invite, welcome, and encourage my readers everywhere to visit Paws for Veterans online and to take a look at and support their wonderful work and the beautiful service that they provide.

Much thanks to these fabulous 
local Paws for Veterans sponsors.
In closing, I just want to take a moment on this very special day and offer my heartfelt thanks to ALL past and present members of the American Armed Forces for their unequaled service, dedication and sacrifice. YOU ARE MY HEROES!
