Board Members Darlene Baker and Wally Hall dined alongside other leading Veterans Service Organization leaders at the White House breakfast on Veterans Day recently, representing BVL at the annual occasion.
This tradition brings together members of the National Veterans Day Organizing Committee to kick off a day of tributes to our nation’s military heroes.
“It’s an honor be included in this event and to share a table with the likes of members from the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Blue Star Mothers,” said Baker.
BVL Board member Hall noted that when he shook the Presidents hand in the receiving line, he jokingly mentioned to the President about his bowling game (the President was famously recorded bowling a 37 on the 2008 campaign trail). Hall says that the President explained that he’s been working on his bowling skills and that his last game at Camp David was a 213.
Hall explained, “It is wonderful that BVL and the sport of bowling are recognized by the White House and the President himself for our efforts. That is something for which all our supporters should be quite proud.”
