I had the opportunity to attend a bench unveiling this past Wednesday.  The bench was dedicated to the late Durbin Keeney, founder of the Northland MAC-V office.

Placed in the garden at the Duluth Minnesota Assistance Council For Veterans office, it was donated by The Kiwanis Club of Friendly Duluth to honor Durbin Keeney for his tireless efforts as an advocate for veterans.

While an emotional event, it was heartwarming seeing those there for Durbin and the work he did.  The Duluth Honor Guard were also there as were Keeney's wife, son, and daughter for this special dedication.

You can see this dedication bench in person at 5209 Ramsey Street, in Duluth, Minnesota.  MAC-V every year helps thousands of veterans with various services such as housing, employment, and much more.

After all of the stories from his friends and family, and learning about the work he did for veterans, I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet Durbin Keeney.
