Event description

Description

The call to serve does NOT end when you take off the uniform. Join veterans Jan Rutherford, Chris Ward, Holly Cunefare in a Veterans Day celebration focused on celebrating the evolution of the ways we veterans continue to serve our country and our local communities.

We will be discussing great work done in the veteran space and hosting a meet and greet for veteran, David Ortiz.

David Ortiz lobbied and advocated for veterans at the Colorado State Capitol from 2015 - 2017. His keynote bill, HB17-1004 College Credit for Military Education and Training, is extremely impactful in setting veterans up for success in higher education as they transition into a career from military service.

David's service continues in the nonprofit arena with VFW Post 1, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Adaptive Adventures. David is also running for office and would be the FIRST wheelchair bound veteran living with a disability to serve at the Colorado State House.

Join us for refreshments and appetizers at VFW Post 1. Jan Rutherford will open the event, presenting on his great work and introducing David Ortiz. Celebrate the service of our brother and sister veterans in our communities and get to know David Ortiz in his run for the Colorado State House.
