The Hilton Americas Hotel was the venue recently as the Helping a Hero.Org , a 501(c )(3), that restores lives and builds homes for severely wounded veterans injured in Iraq and Afghanistan; celebrated and showcased the Wounded Hero Honorees.
Comedian Dennis Miller served as Master of Ceremonies and Tamar Davis sang the National Anthem. The Patriot Award Recipient, George W. Bush, the 43rd President of The United States, delivered the keynote address.
The Wounded Hero Honorees each received a home. Each adapted home helps the wounded hero’s transition back into civilian life, giving them the opportunity to live as independent as possible despite their lifetime injuries.
Attendees spotted included District Attorney Pat Lykos, City Councilman Dr. Jack Christie, former Houston Rockets Coach Jeff Van Gundy, Houston Socialites Carolyn Farb and Joanne Herring, Radio One Regional VP Doug Abernethy, Shawn Parker, R. D. Yoder, State Representative Allen Fletcher, Michael Kubosh, Melanie Strake, among many of Houston’s elite social circle.
Great event for a fabulous group of people.
God Bless America!
WHISPERS IN THE WIND -
(A Little Dirt For The Day)
What is going on? PILL MILLS? Are our Doctors the new Gangstars? Is the healthcare system so bad that our once highly esteemed physicians are opting out for the fast money? The street committee says for a 350.00 office visit, you can get an array of prescriptions, your choice. These drugs are then sold on the street, individually. But the alphabet boys are on top of this, as these pill mill clinics are being busted daily, and these crooked doctors are being hauled off to jail. But jail is just the beginning of their problems cuz these idiots are then losing their licenses, via the Texas Medical Board of Licensing. Dumb Smart Guys! SMH
