The relentless Saving Forgotten Warriors machine continued on tonight at the Cullman Elks Lodge on Brantley Avenue NW in the City of Cullman.

Saving Forgotten Warriors held their 1st monthly Swamp Johns event!

According to the Director of SFW Jeremy Hogan, “We plan to have a Swamp John’s event each month around the 1st week of each month for all of 2018.”

Tickets were $12 and delivered patrons’ choice of fried fish, shrimp, chicken, or a combination of 2 of the choices.

Saving Forgotten Warriors is a United Way of Cullman County Partner Agency.

SFW provides services and assistance to Veterans in need in Cullman County.

This labor of love stemmed from Sgt. Jeremy Hogan. Hogan realized that there were many Veterans in Cullman that needed help and wanted to provide the means and human resources to ensure that their needs were fully met.

All monetary donations given to Saving Forgotten Warriors are used to help local veterans. Whatever needs to be done to assist our veterans, they attempt to do.

To date, they have been able to provide:

• two scooters
• housed a veteran
• paid for repairs on two washers and one dryer
• built ramps
• transport veterans to/from appointments
• gotten them groceries
• mowed and cleaned up veteran’s yards
• built decks
• painted
• also assisted in finding homes for those that need them,

Saving Forgotten Warriors have only been doing this since January 28, 2016. No job is too small or too big for them to take on!

Their volunteer board of directors which consist of six members, all believe that not only is the community on board but God has intervened so much so that they have been advocating for veterans ever since in our community, operating on a shoestring budget to produce amazing results.

By rallying others to help these veterans in need, more Veterans can receive the help that they deserve.
