A lot can change in a year and so it goes for the Texas Sentinels Foundation RE/MAX ONE Home Team in Beaumont. Through countless fundraisers, the help of an amazingly generous community, donors, supporters and a volunteer Army of TSF Ambassadors, the 100% debt-free, mortgage-free, ADA compliant and fully furnished home for Army SSG Phillip Blackmon and his family is nearing completion. According to the TSF Home Team committee and Armour General Contractors, the home will be completed by Labor Day 2018. The home presentation date will be announced at a later date. Thank you to all the business leaders and community groups that have adopted a room to furnish and decorate. The good news is you can still get involved!

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was a sea of camouflage on Wednesday 28 February 2018, as Armed Forces Day Appreciation Day hosted military servicemembers and our very own Texas Sentinels Foundation wounded veterans for the fifth year in a row. The HLSR Chute Club committee outdid themselves once again by hosting our TSF veterans for an evening or rodeo action, a concert by Little Big Town and a load of southern hospitality. A very special thank you goes out to Richard Hale, John Henry and Donna Azcuy and her family for selecting the TSF family as the honored guests along with TSF Board members Al Menconi and Corby Callaway. A special invitation was extended to members of the Army’s 1st CAV Division, Fort Hood, Texas who served as battle buddies with many of our TSF wounded veterans. A special debt of gratitude goes out to David A. Douglas and Tammy Mason Follmer-Douglas for providing BBQ Cook-off tickets and VIP rodeo tickets to many of our TSF families. This was an Texas sized experience our TSF families won’t forget. Cowboy Up!
