Thank You For Being There
Friday, June 16, 2017 by Staff

On June 16, 2017, Point Man of Topeka was honored by the VA for 20 years of service to the Stress Disorder Treatment Program. Point Man has provided thousands of meals with help from the meal team at Topeka Bible Church and other community volunteers. In addition, Point Man has provided thousands of “forgiven” dog tags to remind our veterans of Christ’s love and forgiveness for them. To the alumni of the Topeka program and current veterans being served, we say “thank you and welcome  home”. To those who have partnered with us in giving of their resources and time, we also say a warm thank you.

Thank you for being there

For showing us the path

Thank you for always caring for us and giving us all you have

Thank you for not running when we needed your help the most

Thank you for caring about our spiritual, emotional, and mental health

Thank you for always staying by our side, and giving us the courage and the pride to do things we have never done before

Thank you for giving us something to stay alive for

Thank you for always loving us for our talents and our skills

Thank you for always being there for all the sad times and for the thrills

Thank you for always telling us that we are alright and we are not wrong and thank you for helping us continue on this path to fight for a life where we feel we belong

So many people may come and may go but those little nuggets are what we hold dear

In our sleepless nights and our darkest days as we reflect back those nuggets pass our gaze
