Mark Your Calendar - - Be There!
Every year, over the first
weekend in April, something wonderful happens: Col. Joe Abodeely stages Base Camp - an opportunity for
veterans and friends and supporters of veterans to gather, reminisce,
renew old friendships, make new friendships, swap war stories and tall
tales, and honor fallen soldiers and others who have given in the
battles for freedom around the world.
Col. Joe Abodeely offers guests a heartfelt welcome!
The climate in Maricopa, Arizona is perfect, and
Joe supplies the location for a fine weekend of
memories, old and new.
Many people return to Base Camp year after year - they
have many reasons: some come to honor those who have stood in harm's way
for our freedoms, some come to meet up with old friends, some come to
where they can be with others who understand who they are and where they
have been in the service of their country.
