Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors veteran Vince Ylitalo. Vince served 40 years in the military including 2 tours in Iraq. For some time now he has been battling PTSD. After tying numerous things to help his anxiety, Vince found bee keeping. Vince spends several hours a week working with the bees on the grounds of the VA Medical Center. He says bee keeping helps because he’s just thinking about the bees. He goes on to say it gives him a chance to shut down and not think about the outside world. It allows him to shut his brain down and focus on one thing. Thank you Vince for your service.
