I hope all of you enjoyed our Independence celebration on July the 4th. When you think of the sacrifices that were made by the founders of this great nation I know all of are proud to be called Americans.

 

We at veteran’s corner are happy to help our Veterans when there is a need. Thursday at Goldsby we had a total of 116 who stopped by for assistance with 33of them being there for the first time. We continue to try and work everyone thru as quickly as possible. We had two brothers one from Tulsa and the other from Enid who stopped by to apply for VA benefits.

 

We are receiving request from every part of our state for assistance. Our percentages of claims that are approved continue to stay in the 96% range. There were 8 men who were rated 100% by the VA and over 20 who received ratings from 10% to 90% last week.

 

Our weekly lunch continues to be a favorite for many of our veterans and guest. As usual, one of the men who receive a 100% rating sponsors lunch. We also have a benevolence fund that anyone can donate to. We use this money to help our needy veterans and dependents or widows. We also assist those who need to travel to their VA appointments.

 

If you have some to stop by for a visit about your VA benefits and maybe stay for lunch at Libby’s restaurant with us. We continue to need more help assisting our veterans with their claims. Also there is a need for someone to drive veterans to appointments.
