Stand Down event assists local veterans

By the way Vietnam War veteran John Saily greets people with a wide toothy smile, only those who know him personally would realize he didn’t always have a positive outlook on life.

Plagued by mental health issues over the years, Saily eventually bought a 9-year-old rat terrier named Siko as a companion dog. Even though it can be difficult to financially support a dog when you are in need, Saily says he would do anything to care for his furry friend.
