Fox 2 News Veteran’s Day interview with Rick Briggs and other Veterans that help with CAMP LIBERTY.
Camp Liberty dedicates new lodge – Camp ready to help veterans in need!
Read about Camp Liberty’s dedication of our new lodge at our open house in August.
Nearly 200 vets and their families enjoyed a great day of racing at the FireKeepers Casino 400 race at MIS Speedway in Jackson, MI. Good weather and a fun to watch race where the highlights of the day. This family sent Camp Liberty this picture and offered a big “Thank You” for the tickets that Camp Liberty got for them. A big thanks for serving the country!!
Camp Liberty received the following thank you letter from another Veteran who took her grandfather to the FireKeepers Casino 400 race. We are very pleased she and her grandfather enjoyed the day.
I wanted to thank whomever donated the tickets for the race! I took my grandpa and we had a blast! He’s still telling everyone about it! We even got to see a friend of ours that works for NASCAR. We got to tour the garage, meet the crew chief of car he works on and the owner of the car! We got pictures with multi cars!
I will definitely remember it for the rest of my life!
Thank you very much
Atlas Roofing from Grand Rapids, MI has become a major donor to Camp Liberty with multiple gifts of building suppliers for new Lodge. The plant manager of their insulation plant has been very supportive of the project, and different divisions of their company donated floor insulation, wall sheathing plus insulation, roof sheathing plus insulation, and all the roofing materials for the Lodge. We dared to ask them to donate again, and they stepped up and provided all of the roofing materials for the storage building as well. The value of their donation is about $35K. Their plant manager and PR team visited Camp Liberty and wrote this article and put it in their internal company newsletter. Camp Liberty is really appreciative for Atlas Roofing’s support. Please review that article and read about several disabled vets who have experienced some of the resources offered by Camp Liberty.
Link to these kids letters to our veterans:
Lori Lewis is a teacher at St. Pauls Lutheran School in Ann Arbor and has a son currently serving in the US military. During a late January service project that included her students, she chose Camp Liberty as the charity they wanted to support. They found our website and signed up through our donor registration portal. Camp Liberty was not sure what they had done, but was pleasantly surprised at their generosity and thoughtfulness. The kids and the teaching staff actually collected items that can be used as supplies for our new lodge or given to vets who needed some of the personal care items. There are many items that can be used at the lodge for when Camp Liberty holds organized events or when we have veterans spending the evening.
Jeremy Briggs is interviewed by the internal magazine “Tomorrow” at the Chrysler Corporation and he discusses the hidden wounds that modern soldiers often carry when they come back home.
Please take a moment and listen to this 15 minute interview below (first half of show) and great plug for Camp Liberty and the After the Impact programs that was just on WHMI in late December. Also check out the link off their website.
