VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer

I’m very pleased to say that more of our local Veterans stepped up to help us at Goldsby and Norman to process the claims. The amount of time that each Veteran spends waiting has been cut in half with this added help.

 

Thanks to these men and women who care about our Veterans and want to help. We were able to work over100 veterans and spouses by noon last Thursday. We have also stated helping our needy Veterans and widows by paying for some of their food needs with the donations that we receive from the men and women that we are able to help.

 

We have also tried to expand the number of drivers that are willing to transport those who need a ride to their QTC appointments. These men are doing an outstanding job. Ken Moore, Clayton Lee, EJ Branch , Bill Branch , Sid Smith and Don Tallant.

 

Our local Thursday lunch at Libby’s is very successful with an average attendance of 75. As usual, the Veteran of the week sponsors lunch for the rest of us. The Veteran who drove the longest distance was from the Guthrie area. We had 8 Veterans who were approved for the 100% rate and many others rated from 10% to 80%. There were 2 from the Iraq war who stopped by with questions about benefits that they may be entitled to. If you would like to stop by for a visit at Goldsby there is always coffee, doughnuts and lots of good company.

 

If you need help dealing with the Veterans Administration stop by and maybe we can help you with those issues. Dale K. Graham VFW Service Officer Post 4890 In Norman at 710 East Main at the American Legion Bldg on Wednesday 730am until 11am  and Thursday in Goldsby at the Community bldg 630 am until 2 pm
