Games Bringing Veterans to Biloxi

Retired Marine Corps Sergeant Major Doris Denton (1961-1981 including a tour in Vietnam) will be one of nearly 800 Veterans participating in the National Veterans Golden Age Games, May 7 – 11 in Biloxi, Miss.  BVL is one of the sponsors of the event.

When Denton first heard about the National Veterans Golden Age Games she jumped at the opportunity to participate.  “A speaker from the Biloxi VA came to the Armed Forces Retirement Home, and told us about the Games,” she said. “I thought, why not?”

She will compete in bocce, shuffleboard, horseshoes, and table tennis at the Games.

Denton’s advice to her fellow veterans, “Don’t let age be a factor—next time, get off your butts and do it. I will do the best I can, and I am excited to just participate
