I traveled down to Myrtle Beach on the weekend that the Chinese balloon was shot down. That Monday I received a text from a friend I had not heard from in a long time. Long story short, she and her husband had moved to Myrtle Beach so we met for lunch. There are no coincidences and this is not the first time something like this has happened to me.
Bonnie and her husband are retired or semi-retired Harvard grads who work in education. Bonnie’s idea was to have veterans participate in “Veteran’s Story Hour” at local Public Libraries and Public Schools where possible.
We encourage our VFWs, American Legions, etc to tell patriotic kids’ stories. Veterans come from all walks of life and all political backgrounds. We are a strong unifying force in our nation.
I said I would pass the idea along on the Vets for Trump website. I also explained that Google had taken the vast majority of our traffic away. I’m not sure what good this will do but it is a great idea.
I created two kids’ stories with illustrations with the help of Artificial Intelligence in just a few hours. If I find time I will do more if there is interest.

It can also be read aloud by clicking the play button. Please let us know what you think.
I’m a Past State commander for the vfw and currently sit on the vfw national legislative committee, I think this a great idea even if I don’t always agree with Harvard grads, there’s a first time for everything.
Thanks for your comment, William. I sent you an email with my contact info. Bonnie may reach out to Gary Sinise so we can build a website for this purpose. As you may know, Gary is a big advocate of veteran causes and may help fund the project.
Bonnie is not your typical Harvard grad. What is the opposite ofndrinking the kool-aid? That’s her.
