|Help NC Veterans Join Together for Healing
As you can see, we intend to create an expansive oasis for healing.
But the future is now!
Our greatest need is to connect with local veterans.
You can help in so many ways.
Please let any veteran you know that he is not alone -- all veterans in the Charlotte area are welcome to
attend our yoga and meditation classes being offered by a fellow vet.

|Description: Memorial Day As of today, there have been 3,711 coalition deaths -- 3,435 Americans in Iraq
and 575 coalition deaths -- 386 Americans in Afghanistan! This 'Arlington Memorial' tribute was
spearheaded by Summer Lipford, an Iredell County mother whose son, Army PFC Steven Sirko, died in
2005 while serving in Iraq. And was erected in Mac Anderson Park in Statesville NC, not far from where
Steve was laid to rest at Statesville's Oakwood Cemetery. The photo's are of the many who helped, Stevens
family members to friends to volunteers, from the assembly of the crosses, to the ‘Prayer and Peace’ Vigil on
5-26-07 which were also held on the 27th. The tributes intent is a visual, of 'Honor', to those who have fallen,
the sheer number already. To also bring to ones mind the families left behind and the many innocents of the
countries of both theaters of operation! Those who are Truely Sacrificing! Anyone interested in displaying
the Arlington South crosses, can email organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org ;

Formed in 2006-2007, the organization is a peace based organization for
members of the military who have served in the war, we are focusing on the Iraq & Afghanistan conflicts, however, this foundation is to help all war veterans . We believe the best way to
support our troops is to bring them home now and take care of them when they get here.
This Sunday we are having a Benefit for Gold
Star Mother Summer Lipford's family. Many of you know
her through her passionate and tireless activism. She
is also the primary force behind the Arlington South
projects this year in Statesville and Charlotte.
Join us at Charlotte Energy Solutions, 337 Baldwin
Ave., Charlotte 28204 on Sunday, December 16th at 6PM
for a movie ("I'm not there" the experimental new
Dylan biopic), music, and snacks.
We'll be also collecting donations for Summer's
family -- they have been going through some serious
struggles since the loss of her son, Pfc. Steven
Sirko,20, in Iraq on April 17, 2005. The path that our
military families walk is a trying and lonely one. Let
us walk with them, so we can better understand. Please
forward this to anyone you wish to.
See you this Sunday!
If you have questions, or items to donate for a silent
auction, please call Maggie Davis at 704-641-9463.
