touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God's healing touch.|
Monica Harvey is a compelling singer using her talent to "Welcome Home" those Veterans lost and in need of a healed heart. Click to listen to Bandaid for your Heart by Just Us.
Since 2001, Monica has been traveling with Veteran Commanders through Nebraska to Veterans Homes, Hospitals, Psychiatric Wards and Correctional Centers. Click here to check her schedule. Beginning in 2004, she volunteers at Biker rallies, rides, Vietnam/Korean War Vet reunions, Tributes
and traveling walls in the central states.
Aug. 25, 2001, during
a Veterans parade, Monica was riding with the VFW State Commander in an antique wagon behind Percheron mares, something spooked
the mares and in the resulting runaway they crashed into the back of a pickup. The driver broke his ribs, the State Commander
severely broke his leg, another rider had to have shoulder surgery and a bruised kidney. Monica flew 19 ft. through a "brown
cloud" landing first on her right fist and jamming her right elbow and bruising her right leg. This extraordinary experience
caught the attention of the Veteran Commanders and as a result they have adopted Monica as their "little sister".
Along the NE Veterans of Foreign Wars Memorial Highway 83 there are marker
signs at each state line, and two at each county line through Nebraska along "83". Visit the VFW Memorial HWY 83 site by clicking here. We honor Gold Star Mothers and their contribution to the United States. Click here to add your memorial to this site.
