New Veteran Volunteers help to honor their fellow service members

The Honor Bell is an instrument that serves multiple purposes. First, it tolls in honor of the brave men and women who served our country in our military forces. Second, it helps to educate people young and old about the importance of that service. And perhaps most importantly, it gives veterans a chance to serve again by volunteering as members of the Bell Guard. Here are a few new folks we'd like to welcome to the Honor Bell Family.

 Ms. Jean Taylor is a US Airforce Vietnam veteran who heard about the Foundation's mission at one of our presentations, and signed up to help.  She enjoys tolling the Honor Bell for any female vets we honor. Jean was a dietitian during the war and also volunteers at Ft Logan in the Public Information Center.
