Armed Forces Day builds a happy memory for one Aurora army vet and his family – Retired Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Drake receives much needed home improvement work
~ by Kristen Kidd - 5/20/2013 ~
President Kennedy made Armed Forces Day an official holiday in 1962, to honor Americans serving in all branches of the U.S. military. Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May, and I was honored to spend part of the day at the home of a local Army veteran who had been chosen to receive much needed free home improvements to better accommodate his mobility challenges.

The professional plumbers at Bell Plumbing & Heating Company, a Best Bath dealer in Colorado, understand that your bathroom needs to be a very functional space.

Even with their busy schedule, Best Bath staff members, Jeff Mooney, President, and Jay Multanen, Owner, made time to venture out in town while attending ACMA (American Composites Manufacturers Association) in Orlando, Florida. They came across Magical Midway Thrill Park in Orlando. There, they found themselves face-to-face with the ultimate thrill ride attraction. The human SLING SHOT!
Ultimate Thrill Ride!
For those who aren’t familiar with this ride, it is basically a reverse bungee jump. The platform tilts you back into a reclined position and lowers you into the heart of a volcano. As the volcano starts to erupt, you are catapulted out at a force of 3-5 G’s. You experience total weightlessness as you are rocketing over 390 feet above the ground.
Lucky for us, there was a camera on board!
