I am excited to know that our local, Hoosier veterans and military spouses will have the opportunity to benefit from this event. Veterans sacrifice so much for our freedom and learn many valuable skills from their military experience. Allowing them the chance to apply these skills in pursuit of their dreams and to provide for their families is the least we can do for them.
