It was a pleasure and an honor to host Navy Veteran Gunners Mate David Pruden and his wife last night at the Vikings game at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Bethany, his hospice nurse
had informed us that his last wish was to enjoy a night out with wife Tammy at the stadium he had never been to. We were very happy to provide not only that ,but also a hotel for the night ,THANKS to Phil at Courtyard Marriott, a delicious lunch at TownHall Brewery THANKS to Dan and a Fire Truck escort to US Bank Stadium THANKS to many firefighters at the Minneapolis Fire Dept. We also hosted a couple other heroes and Old friends – Air Force SSG Jeremy Walker who was our FIRST EVER GUEST at Viking game at Metrodome 10 years ago almost to the day, and his wife Who is still serving Stephanie Walker. It was GREAT to hang out with them again .WHAT AN AWESOME NIGHT THIS WAS! Oh yeah- there was a game too …kind of … not what any of our Viking fan warriors wanted to see … a 40-3 drubbing by the Dallas Cowboys . But despite that score, they can’t take the night away from our heroes …THANK YOU Jeremy
