VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


There were 116 veterans who stopped by for assistance with their VA claims and questions last Thursday at the Goldsby Community center. Of that total there were 33 who had never filed a claim before. Our staff started at 6am and the last Veteran was thru at 2:30 pm.  Our lunch was attended by over 90 Veterans with our Veteran of the week Willie Lawrence of OKC sponsoring it.

 

I would like to see every Veteran in our county stop by for a visit with us about possible benefits that they maybe eligible for. We continue to help our Veterans and widows with our benevolence fund Mr. A.M. Reeves and W.H. Cummins both made a donation to this fund. Our drivers were able to transport 5 veterans to their appointments for VA rating exams.  These men are doing a tremendous service for us, at this time I would like to thank Mr. Kenny Moore and both Branch brothers E. J. and Bill for transporting these men. I would also like to thank the Goldsby town officials for allowing us the use of the community Center to help our Veterans.

 

The man who drove the longest distance was from Houston Texas last week. I feel that what we are doing out here is very important to our community and for all Veterans and their families. I appreciate everyone who helps with our mission and we all owe a great debt to the men and women who are serving our country now and all who have served in the past. 

 

If you are a Veteran or know of one who has not met with us we encourage you to stop in for a visit. We are continuing to increase the number of Veterans that we see in the Norman office also.
