Classes of Veteran

By VinnieMO
Join us for stories of peril to moments of joy all along theses Warriors path of healing.Cow tipping is as dangerous as moving work on the block. We take a sociological perspective of lessons learned from decades of warfare in this countries longest war to date. From the boroughs of NY, the burbs of Lees Summit, and the Mountain tops of the Rockies. One commonality we all shared was a love of country and a lack of options. Join us for non stop laughs and serious Veteran education from the professionals themselves.. YOU and your family
