Service Officers Report: The Blue Water Bill was passed by Congress and approved by the court system. It is now up to the Veterans Administration on how to process the claims of veterans.
For a listing of Illinois V.A. benefits available please go to the web site:
Community Relations Report: The Village of Bloomingdale Public Works Department picked up and delivered to Hines, about10k move-in essential items. Hines has about 1200 veterans, Jesse Brown 1500 veterans and Lovell 500 veterans that are constantly in need of support. A motion was made seconded and passed to purchase six beds and linens for the Jesse Brown Center.
Veteran’s Affairs: A Blue Water Bill veteran has received a favorable ruling in the courts. If the Justice Department does nothing the court’s ruling could become law. If you are a Blue Water veteran and have conditions that may be attributed to Agent Orange, file a claim. Contact a Service Officer for details.
At a veteran’s council meeting in Chicago, the topic was brought up to get the organization to provide a storage facility to house move-in essential and household items. These items could be stored until they are needed. The matter will be looked into.
Business: Nomination of officers for 2019-20 were held.
All nominations are open until the election.
Good of the Order: If you live in the Bloomingdale Township Senior Center area and need a walker, wheel chair or other items, contact them. There is no cost for these items.
The Northern Ray Corvette club collected move-in essential items and they were distributed to the Jesse Brown center.
