VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


Thursday at Goldsby we set a new record with 84 Veterans stopping by for assistance with their VA questions and claims for benefits. The men and women we help deserve all of the help that we can give them.  At our weekly Veterans lunch there were 78 who joined us for a very good meal at Libby’s.

Our sponsor for lunch was Mr. Donald Williamson of Moore. We continue to have some of our local men and women offering to help us with there time and monetary donations to help our needy Veterans and their families. Our drivers are logging many miles transporting some of our Veterans to their VA appointments.

Many people are contacting us by phone and e-mail with questions about VA benefits for themselves or family members. We continue to see a very large number of WW II and Korean Veterans. Many of these men and women have just found out that they may be eligible for benefits.

With the growing number of cases that we are working I would like to have a few more dedicated volunteers to help with this cause. Today I attended a district 10 meeting of the VFW in Del City where we discussed Veterans benefits and how we can do more for our Veterans. Mr. Gordon Wheeler is our district Commander where he discussed ways to increase our membership.

I belong to post 4890 in Norman and would like to encourage all eligible readers to join this organization. This next Thursday we may have a couple of guest stop by and visit our Veterans Corner group. I will be at the American Legion Wednesday in Norman at 710 East Main from 8 AM until 1130 AM and in Goldsby on Thursday from 7am until 2:30 PM.
