Meet a REAL American Hero - An Iraqi Vet 

Meet a true American hero, Neil Duncan, who incurred major injuries from an IED explosion in December of 2005. He has made an incredible recovery and will be coming home to MN. A benefit is being held for him on April 21, 2007, from 2:00 - 6:00.

As Neil will be coming home to Minnesota, his friends and family want to give him a proper welcome home and help him financially as he starts his new life as an independent person. We wish to honor Neil and to express our sincere appreciation for his sacrifice and commitment to our country. This benefit will include a silent auction, raffle, and cash donations as well as a chance for people to meet our hero. All proceeds will be used to help Neil build an independent life adapted to his specific needs - a handicap accessible house, a vehicle with adaptive equipment, etc.

The benefit will be held at the following address:

American Legion Post #172
260 4th Avenue SE
(Hwy. 169 & Cty. Rd. 81)
Osseo, Minnesota 55369
