Happy hour today at Chez Billy for Friends of the Soldiers Home

Chillin at the Old Soldiers' Home You may or may not know about the Old Soldiers Home -- officially the Armed Forces Retirement Home, it's located northeast of Park View and serves as a retirement home for veterans.

It's a National Historic Landmark and is really big and quite nice inside, lots of grass and rolling hills. The Friends of the Soldiers Home works to connect neighbors and Soldiers Home residents.
