Help A Veteran Go Home

If you've been out to Cowtown AZ, odds are you've met Dewayne Foster AKA Latigo Smith. Dewayne has lived at Cowtown for several years and has been active as an actor, stuntman, cowboy, leather worker, and civil war reenactor.  In addition to living at Cowtown, Dewayne has also participated extensively in Old West reenactments at Pioneer Village and other venues.  Dewayne served 20 years in the U.S. Army, including time spent in the LRRPs. Despite being 75 years old, Dewayne has never slowed down and using his fixed income, helps support his mother who is in a nursing home in Illinois.  Sadly, Dewayne recently lost the travel trailer he has called home for the past 15 years due to a monsoon related flood.  While he was able to save most of his possessions, he lost his shelter and is currently staying with friends. Dewayne does not have the funds to purchase a new travel trailer, but with your help we can get him back to Cowtown where he belongs.  Your contribution will help him purchase a new to him travel trailer, generators and other equipment that was lost in the flood. Any help you can give to this hard working veteran would be greatly appreciated. A checking account has been set up to accept donations that go directly to Dewayne to help him rebuild. Thank you!
