Veterans and their families and friends gathered, Sept. 9, for an evening of story sharing and remembrances.
Bridgewood Church, 6765 Rattalee Lake Road, hosted the Engage Your Destiny event with speaker Ben Peterson, kicking off a week of activities for veterans.
The evening included a military museum with items provided by local veterans.
Peterson’s mission is to fill his duffel bag with veterans’ stories of fitting in after serving overseas, in order to help carry their burden. His goal is to help them heal and find new purpose. Check engageyourdestiny.com for more information.
