Memorable Gifts We Received

In Boise Idaho, The Secretary of Veterans Affairs was visiting the VA hospital the week before we arrived.
Jeff Middlemas, who arranged our visit had posted our press release on all the bill boards.
When Secretary Shinseki was visiting, Jeff pointed out our pictures and explained what we were doing and asked if there was anything he could give us. On the last day of Secretary Shinseki's visit as he was leaving, the Secretary left a coin for each one of us.

In Pocatello Idaho, We were presented by Wade Pierce of POW*MIA Awareness Association, National Head Quarters,
the below coin

The Greater Pocatello Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee presented us the below coin.

Jeff Middlemas, who works for the Dept of Veterans Affairs Police gave us this patch

Dave received champagne and this note 
Note says,"thank you for all that you've done for our wounded soldiers!"
Erik, Sarah, & staff, The Captain Jefferds Inn
