VETERANS CORNER

 

VFW Post 4890


 

By: Dale K. Graham, Service Officer


Mr. James Rogers of Blanchard was our Veteran of the week and our sponsor for lunch at Libbys last Thursday. We appreciate what each of our veterans does for us at Goldsby. Many of the men and women that we help are willing to sponsor a lunch or to help others who are not as fortunate.

 

We were able to help 90 men and women Veterans last week with 19 of those stopping by for the first time. There were 2 Marine Veterans from Indiana who stopped by and had lunch with us. The number of Gulf War Veterans that we see continues to increase. With more of them finding out about their benefits we expect this group to keep increasing. There were 9 veterans who were rated at the 100% rate last week and many more from 10% to 80%.

 

Jackie Graham is our new computer person she will track the men and women whose claims we work on. As the number of Veterans that we help increases the need for more helpers is going to continue to rise.

 

Maybe its time for you to stop by and visit with us and maybe join our team of volunteers. I will be at the Norman American Legion 710 East Main each Wednesday from730 am until 1130 am and at the Goldsby Community Center each Thursday from 630 am until 2 pm.
