March 19, 2017
David Riley, national commander for Disabled American Veterans, is scheduled to give a presentation March 30 at the Glenwood Springs High School.
Riley is the first quadruple amputee veteran to become the national commander of DAV, and will be sharing his inspirational life story at the event.
According to a news release, Riley's priority for his term in the office is to "ensure the DAV continues its lifetime of support for veterans and families."
Riley is in the Roaring Fork Valley for the 2017 National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, taking place March 26-31 at Snowmass Village. The clinic brings disabled veterans from around the country for a variety of winter sports and social activities, including lunch hosted by the Glenwood Springs Elks Lodge and visits to the Glenwood Hot Springs on three of those days.
Admission for Riley's March 30 talk at GSHS is free. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided by the Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub from 5-6 p.m., followed by the presentation.
