The following letter is written by the Activity Assistant at our very own premiere Atlanta retirement community, Park Springs, Simone Gibson. This letter is written about the Veterans Day program 2010 that our staff and Members in our Atlanta retirement community.

“Col. Brent Bracewell is truly one of the nicest most genuine persons you will ever meet. We had the pleasure of having Col. Bracewell be the guest speaker at our Park Springs Veterans Day program on November 11,2010, honoring our members.  Col. Bracewell is currently serving as the Commander of the 78th Aviation Troop Command, charged with the responsibility of overseeing the entire Georgia Army National Guard’s aviation assets to include all aircraft and associated personnel.  During his presentation Col. Bracewell spoke passionately about his love for the military life, technological advances of the aircraft and the comrade of his fellow servicemen. At the end of his presentation he was kind enough to extend an invitation for our members to tour Dobbins Air Reserve Base and have lunch on post.  Due to his energetic and passionate speech our members were “fired up” and jumped at this opportunity! We filled the 37 passenger bus in 10 minutes! Upon arrival at Dobbins Col. Bracewell and his fellow crew welcomed our members and instantly engaged them in conversations about their daily routines at Dobbins and the multiple responsibilities they will encounter upon deployment back to Iraq. After the presentations we had the chance to dine with our hostesses and get to know them on a more personal level.  At the end of the tour Col. Bracewell invited our members to come back in the spring when they will have the opportunity to go “joy riding” in one of the aircraft!  The members had a FANTASTIC time and are still talking about it!”
