Service Officers Report: The courts have indicated that veterans who were in a burn area cannot be denied disability benefits.
Community Relations Report: There will not be a veterans clinic held this year. Anyone wishing to donate household items can contact Hines hospital (602-702-7658). May has been designated as National Baby Shower month. Support the Military Outreach Caregivers program.
Veterans Affairs:VFW Post 7539 voted to support the Red, White and Blue program which is used to support the Service Officer's Program. Our Post voted to donate money for the purchase of children’s books. Veterans can then use these books to read to their children to increase their literacy.
There is a program to get an amber alert system set up for veterans who are contemplating suicide or have PTSD issues. Homeless veterans who need their medical records will find it easier to obtain those records. There would be no charge if those records are sent to the V.A.
Good of the Order: A plaque of appreciation will be presented to the employee who stopped the theft of our donation jar from a local pizza restaurant.
Vietnam Veterans can get a veteran’s license plate with no charge for the vanity plate. A DD 214 form and proof of the Vietnam Service medal is required. There are additional fees (normal renewal fees) that may apply.
