Ralph and Carrie Roeger, both Marine veterans, were inspired to open the Semper Fi Bar and Grille this year to welcome everyone, but most especially the veterans and first responders who need a place to share a meal as well as their stories. So many of our brothers and sisters-in-arms don’t get a chance to make it home, and Ralph and Carrie wanted to make sure that the ones who do have a place where they feel safe, comfortable, revered, and not least of all, well fed.
Until next time, Woodstock…much love, Jennifer
