VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


Another record was set Last Thursday in Goldsby with 111 Men and women stopping by for assistance with their VA claims and questions. I want to publicly Thank the Goldsby town hall folks for providing a place for our Veterans to meet. I also want to thank Libby and her staff for the individual attention that each of these heroes receive during our weekly luncheon. 

 

Without the help of everyone involved in this endeavor our success would not be possible.  Our Veteran of the week was from Wewoka,  A.B. and his wife provided lunch for 88 of us at Libbys.  We encourage everyone who has been in the military active duty, reserve, National Guard or widows to stop by for information on benefits that they may be entitled to. There were 36 new claims for benefits filed last week and 75 others who were followed up from previous claims. Our staff continues to grow with the number of men and women who need assistance.

 

Last week we provided rides for 5 Veterans for their rating appointments and we were able to pay for food for one family. We also provided funds for medical expenses for a veteran. If you would like to support our cause stop by and we will find a job for you. The Veteran who drove the longest distance was from Atoka. We continue to be very successful helping our Veterans to receive the benefits that they earned while in the military. 

 

For questions and assistance with your questions about VA benefits call Dale K. Graham VFW Service Officer post 4890  @405 -550- 8806 or stop by Wednesday in Norman at the American Legion on Wednesday from 8am until  1130 am and on Thursday at Goldsby in the New Community bldg. from 7am until 2pm.
