On Veterans Day, a reception was held at the beautiful Missouri History Museum for U.S.VETS – St Louis. Professor Louis S. Gerteis of University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL) spoke about the battle lines across Missouri and St. Louis during the Civil War. Executive Director Bill Wallace also spoke to the group of partners, politicians and supporters about the current state of veterans in the region and our specific work serving homeless and at risk veterans and their families. Guests were invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres, view pictures of service projects and had a chance to learn about some of our St Louis clients.
Awards were presented to the U.S.VETS – St. Louis Partners of the Year: Emerson Electric, The Caleb C. and Julia W. Dula Foundation, and Prism Medical U.S.A.
A special thank you to all who attended and supported this event.
