This week the DAV of MN said farewell and thank you to Eugene (Energizer Bunny) Carriere. Eugene has been a volunteer driver for over 5 years. It is with a heavy heart that the DAV bids farewell to Eugene. Without using GPS, and plotting his routes the night prior using his trusty Hudson Map Book, Eugene found crafty ways around traffic and road construction. Neither the cold winter days or the hot summer could keep him from showing up bright and early for the morning shift. If there was a shift to cover, Eugene was the man to call. Because of his dedication and commitment to Minnesota’s veterans, a farewell luncheon was held where Commander Aguirre presented a well-deserved award.
The DAV of MN and the DAV Minneapolis VA Volunteer Drivers wish Eugene a hearty farewell and are eternally grateful for his kind heart and caring when it came to our veterans. We all know that his generosity will not stop here.
