VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


Thursday was another big day for our local veterans, with several receiving a 100% rating and many others from 10-80 percent for their service-connected disabilities. We had over 100 veterans for our lunch at Libby’s Restaurant with Mr. Danny Simms treating all of those present.

 

Mr. Bob Clement and Jon Lister both made donations to our benevolence fund. We were able to make donations of $800 to our needy veterans from this fund.

 

We processed 128 veteran’s claims with 33 of these being first timers. The veteran driving the longest distance this past week was from Canadian Oklahoma. Overall, 99% of our claims have been approved that we filed through the department of veterans affairs.

 

We continue to need more volunteers to help us with the large numbers of veterans and dependence who are stopping by for assistance with their VA claims and questions. Last week we provided transportation to seven veterans who needed rides to their QTC appointments.

 

If you would like to volunteer your time to help us at the Goldsby community center or with transportation, please stop by and visit us Thursday mornings.
