Hopes and Dreams provided a great time for those that came. These soldiers had a chance to really bond with the horses and enjoy family time. Some said this was the best day they have had in a long time. Some expressed they wanted more time at the location to really be ableto decompress. There were several that told me that they can't wait to come back and some were planning on bringing their families the next time. The Randalls definitely cater to those that come out. As they say "If they don't have something just let them know and they will go get it". As a first time volunteer, I can see that they are really here for the guys that have served in the military and they really just want a safe haven for them to heal from their battle wounds, whether physical or emotional. Overall a great place to relax!

Matthew Wingate is a pathological liar! He hasn't spent a single day in a military uniform. How dare he claim to be a part of such an esteemed group of men and women. He does have the blood of 3 generations of 82nd Airborne running through his veins, but his mental health diagnoses prevents entrance into anything. He would be in jail but even the jailers find his reliance on mental health medications a liability and too costly.
Shame on the reporter that didn't research the person he was interviewing!
Recommend the local American Legion group check him out and see what kind of imposter he is.
