VFW Post 4890


By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer

Thursday Joe Baker celebrated the VA rating decision by treating his family and local Veterans to a great lunch at Libby’s restaurant in Goldsby. We finished Mr. Bakers claim for service connection of injuries that that occurred while he was in the military.


Our Veterans Corner group is able to help most all of the men and women who stop by. Last week was the best week ever with 12 of our local Veterans being rated at 100 %. These men did not know that they were eligible to receive benefits for their disabilities.


We continue to have more of the Gulf war Veterans stop by with questions about benefits. Many of the Reserve and National Guard members are not aware of the many programs that the Veterans Administration has for them. Last week we helped a Veteran who served in the Bosnian action.


Our website offers a wide variety of answers for your questions about VA benefits. The address is --- we have many links that you may be able to use.


We have men and women who will drive our veterans to appointments at the OKC VA if needed. If you or someone in your circle is a Veteran or widow of one stop by and maybe we can help you to receive VA benefits. I will be at Norman each Wednesday from 8am until 11:30 am at the American Legion located at 710 East Main and on Thursday 7:30 am until 2:30pm Goldsby at the new community center.
