Home Care for Veterans
Congratulations to Alene Pogue (Hunter), our veteran of the month. Alene served in the Army during WWII and worked in a warehouse managing the uniforms, boots and tents at Fort Sam Houston.
Alene is a widow to Robert Pogue Sr. Alene has 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 1 great great grand child.
Alene loves animals and enjoys her chihuahua Lucky. She loves flowers, and as long as she was able, she did all the yard work. Robert thought he could keep a garden – so she gave him ½ acre to plow up all he wanted. He managed a few tomatoes and onions each year and it didn’t cost the family too much!
Alene, thank you for your story and more importantly, thank you for your service.
