Today we Catered a Luncheon Event hosted by the United War Veterans Council, titled – Salute to the Women who Served.
***
Being Humbled is NOT even putting it lightly. As a Civilian woman, I can’t even imagine the sacrifice these women make. Being present today, listening to the Speakers, I could only watch on in awe. Feeling proud to be a WOMAN. Feeling empowered to help others.

Salute to women who served
***
I listened to their stories. I loved that one woman stated “We are not victims. We just don’t know what was available to us” – They’re not looking for “handouts” or “sympathy”.. Simply looking to transition into Civilian Life whether it be school, family, workplace, life in general, including health issues be it physical and emotional.

One woman stated that a big pet peeve occured when she attended Veteran Events. Someone would ask “oh, are you married to Veteran” OR “are you the daughter of a Veteran” and all she would want to scream is “NO NO, I AM THE VETERAN” I am just as important and made similar sacrifices and suffered similar wounds. Ask me if I NEED Help. Thank ME for Serving……

That really got to my Core. It made so much sense and I have to agree. Today was an amazing day to be amongst such strong women and to watch and listen to others lending an ear and helping hand.

Chef and I are thankful for the opportunity to work with such wonderful people.
