VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


The Veteran of the week was Kenneth Roberts from Shawnee; Kenneth treated all of us to a very good lunch Thursday at Libby’s restaurant in Goldsby. Our tradition at Veterans Corner has been for one of the veterans rated at 100% each week to buy lunch.

 

There were 101 Veterans who joined us for lunch at Libby’s restaurant Thursday with Mr. Earl Wilson of Lindsay being our Veteran of the week. Earl, all of us appreciate your service to this great country.  Our local Veterans were very successful last week having their claims approved with 11 rated at the 100% rate and many more with ratings of 10% to 80%. We were able to assist over 100 Veterans with their questions and claims for VA benefits.

 

The veteran traveling the longest distance was from Kingston. We were able to help him to receive a rating of 100%. This man was a Korean War Veteran who had never filed a claim before he joined us for lunch in January. Most of the men and women that we see are not aware of the benefits that they are eligible for. On June 12 Veterans Corner will be short on staff, please try and schedule your visit on the Thursday before or after that date.

 

We are trying to provide transportation to the Veterans who need it for their VA rating appointments. Our benevolence fund is being used very wisely helping our most needy Veterans. Please encourage all Veterans that you know to stop by and visit with us about benefits that they maybe entitled to.
