Post War Story

We received many wonderful stories from the 3-hour event. Tammy Steller's father (Rich Labash) served on the USS Constellation. He flew in from Omaha, Nebraska just to attend the event: From Tammy: “In over 50 years, my father has never met anyone else who served on the Connie and he MET TWO at Vet Connect! You made this happen and you have my sincere thanks and appreciation.”

Qualified Listeners would again like to thank all our sponsors, resources, Veterans, and families who attended our 4th Annual Vet Connect Event! We hope you will join us again next year!

Military Trivia

Buffalo Soldiers

We would like to thank the Buffalo Soldiers for attending the Vet Connect Conference. This group has a very interesting history dating back to 1866, right after the Civil War.
