Were you in the military?
Do you like to travel about?
Do you like to meet new friends?
This is what S.M.A.R.T. is all about.
S.M.A.R.T stands for Special Military Active and Recreational Travelers
It really is quite fun.
We have a Battle Born Chapter,
And we’ve only just begun.
We meet as a group a couple times a year,
But it’s the caravans that I like the most.
Last year, we went to Alberta, Canada
This year to the “Balloon Festival” in Albuquerque
But the caravans go from coast to coast
The trips are planned in advance
By a Wagon Master that knows what to do
The trip can be two weeks or more.
Seeing new sites and fun excursions
Is what we like to do
SMART RV Caravans go to Alaska, New England,
National Parks and more
SMART RVing has the best prices
The leaders are volunteers
Who could ask for more?
So it doesn’t matter what branch you’re from
The Canadian Armed forces, too.
If you’re interested in recreational travel
And veteran camaraderie,
SMART will welcome you!
“We are seeing the country we defend.”
