25 Apr Boulder City students make contribution to veterans’ Boot Campaign
According to the Boulder City Review, a group of 448 students recently gathered Garrett Junior High School to honor veterans’ service with an assembly and donate $3,600 to a veterans group. Among the special guests at the April 8 event was retired U.S. Marine Sgt. Mark Burleson. According to the newspaper, “Burleson, an ambassador for Boot Campaign, lost both arms and the vision in his left eye in a roadside bomb blast when he was stationed in Afghanistan in 2011. One year later, through his rehabilitation, he learned about Boot Campaign and was immediately drawn to the organization, he said.” For more information, visit www.bootcampaign.org.
