Winchester, Kentucky (LEX 18) — Now that the weather is starting to get a little more comfortable to sit outside, some veterans have a new place to do it.
Thanks to Winchester’s teenager’s willingness to give back, his long-awaited Eagle Scout project is a way to thank you.
“I like writing and reading books and things in my diary and working on my laptop,” said Virginia Brubeck, who worked for the US Marine Corps for eight years.
Now she has a place to do it in the gazebo behind Lady Veteran Connect in Winchester.
“It’s very peaceful and relaxing,” she said.
It’s a gift for her and other female veterans.
“I worked here, what do you need?” Reminded me of 17-year-old Tristan Jones. “Is there anything I can do?”
Jones says he needs a place to sit and relax. So, as the Scouts do, they had to work to start making this plan.
“It took about a year and a half to raise money,” Jones said. “It was a long and tedious process. People helped me, ran me and taught me how to do things properly. To me doing this, it’s like my big thanks. “
Thank you for the two words that you often say with meaning and purpose. Jones hopes his appreciation will be an experience.
“We need to help in the best possible way,” says Jones. “Even if it provides a quiet place to sit, ponder and relax.”
“This really shows that there are still a lot of veterinary-minded humans in the world,” Brubeck said.
This is the gift Jones intended to give.
“This is what I’ve been waiting for and I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” he said. “a long time”
