Vail Daily | Vail Veterans Program brings another group of heroes to town
VAIL — Vail Fire Chief Mark Novak grinned as he looked around at the organized chaos in his West Vail fire station. Every piece of gear was in the driveway, including the trucks. On the empty floor a couple hundred people milled around, talking, laughing, enjoying themselves and each other.
The firefighters were hosting the Vail Veterans Program for dinner on the heroes’ final night of their March session, as they have for almost a decade and a half.
“The fire service is centered around serving our community, and there are lots of great ways to accomplish that. There’s something special about inviting these heroes into our home and allowing us to be part of their stay in Vail,” Novak said.
