Again this year your HPROA has been invited to participate in the annual ”arrival reception” for several hundred wounded and disabled veterans at Bush Intercontinental Airport. The HPROA has participated in this reception for about ten years. The event is sponsored by the  “MOMS” organization (Mothers of Military Serving) and Academy Sports and Outdoors Corporation. Several hundred wounded warriors will arrive at Bush Airport about 9am on May 15, 2015. The reception will be in terminal ”C” as the vets move from their planes to buses that will take them  down the coast for a weekend of fishing. The buses will be escorted by local law enforcement and the “Patriot Guard”.

All HPROA members are also invited to park FREE at the HPD parking lot at terminal “B” and attend a FREE breakfast in the HPD office inside of terminal ”B” (ground level) starting at 8am. After breakfast we will be taken by airport shuttle to the arrival site and returned to the HPD office after the reception.

We encourage all members to attend and show our thanks and support to these military vets who have been injured or disabled while serving our country.

Family Assistance Update
April 2015
E. W. Godfrey: UPDATE (4-26-15 nf) Celia reports that E.W. was moved to another room at the Legacy. He seems to be responding better to therapy and hopefully that will continue. His phone number has changed so give him a call and keep those prayers acoming. 972-468-6310 (4-20-15 nf-db)  Celia reports that E.W. was moved Saturday to a skilled nursing facility-The Legacy at Willowbend, 6101 Ohio Dr., Plano, Tx 75024. Phone #972-468-6314. The plan is to stay there until the middle of June when they will go back in the hospital to have the artificial plate put in. They are hoping that he will respond to therapy so that he might get to go home before going back to hospital in June. Continue  to keep the Godfreys in your prayers.

Ray Collins:(4-15-15 db) Went to the Legend Oaks Rehab Center, 8902 West Rd at Gessner, Room 103 in Cy-Fair and visited with Ray Collins this date. He was up in a wheelchair and dressed and having lunch with his wife Mary.  His room was full of  B-day balloons for his 75th birthday today. Ray says he is still coming along with his therapy twice a day and although he is improving, it is taking awhile.  They both appreciate all well wishes and prayers and assured me that the prayers are working. Ray is in therapy at10AM to llAM  and 2PM till 3PM. Keep them in your thoughts and  prayers and give them a call. Doug/FAC 

"Chuck" Smith (4-15-15 nf) We visited with Chuck by phone this evening and he reports that due to his diabetes his kidneys are in such bad shape to the point where he & Dot are training to do dialysis at home for whatever time it takes and how many days a week he has to do it. He will actually begin doing the dialysis for real next week, of course with Dot's able assistance. Chuck & Dot are starting on a new journey and they ask for our prayers as they walk it together. Call him at 936-544-6557 and give him a word of encouragement.
E.W.Godfrey:(4-15-15 nf) Celia reports this evening that Ernie's therapy is not going well as hoped. His left side is just not responding even with his extra effort. The plan now seems to be that he will move to a skilled nursing facility for 3 months and at that time they will readmit him to the hospital where they will put a new flap in. [More]
