VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


Our local Veterans enjoyed a very another very successful week with several of them receiving a 100% rating from the Veterans Administration Regional office in Muskogee. There were over 100 Veterans claims processed Thursday with 30 of those being first timers. It would not be possible to help the large number of Veterans who stop by our Veterans Corner in Goldsby without the dedicated staff who volunteer their time and effort to support those who have done so much for our country.

 

We are continuing to seek more volunteers to help us fill the needs of our Veterans. At the present time we need a computer person to keep our records. There is always a need for more men and women to help fill out applications for VA medical and other types of benefits.

 

We had 88 in attendance for lunch at Libby’s on Thursday sponsored by our Veterans of the week Mr. Eaves of Washington and Mr. Moore of Dibble. Our thanks go out to these men for their service to our country.

 

There are more Gulf War men and women stopping by with questions about benefits that they maybe eligible for. Many of these Veterans could be facing health related problems caused by exposure to chemical agents that they were exposed to. We will try to help them stay informed about any information that becomes available.
