Retreat CEO Speaks to Veterans Group

(November 12, 2012) Brattleboro Retreat President & CEO Dr. Rob Simpson was invited by the Brattleboro American Legion to speak at the Marine Corps Ball on Saturday evening, November 10th. Simpson, who is the son of a WWII veteran, told the gathering: “Today my father would be proud of all of you in this room tonight. On Veterans Day we will honor those who have fought for our freedom and we must always remember that freedom is not free.  It is paid for by our fellow Americans who have been willing to fight and die for us, and we must never forget their sacrifices. My father came home from war and took care of his family and his community, just like so many of you in this room tonight. Thank you for your service to our country.”
