JOINT SPECIAL OPERATIONS AIR COMMAND – CENTRAL
Today Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation received a special recognition from the Joint Special Operations Air Command. Along with a certificate, we received an American flag that was flown during a combat mission over Iraq on March 4, 2020, on board a MC-12W aircraft in direct support of Operation Deliberate Resolve in the continued fight against ISIS and other terrorist organizations. We are so grateful for this honor!
MAILING YOUR CLAIMS
When you are mailing us your DBQ’s or other types of medical evidence, please include a photocopy of your DD-214, a copy of your last percentage letter from the VA, and the 2 forms located on our website. Please include all these items in one envelope when you mail to us. If you have been denied for any claim prior, also send a copy of the denial letter from the VA. When needed, we may call clients to gather additional information. Our mailing address is PO Box 592, Washington, OK 73093.
IMPORTANT: it is imperative that clients mail us complete packets rather than sending partial information in more than one mailing. Going forward, incomplete packets will be mailed back to clients with instructions on next steps.
BY THE NUMBERS
Last week 29 veterans received a disability rating of 100% for their service-connected disabilities. These veterans will also be eligible for the state benefits of sales tax exemptions, property tax exemptions, and other benefits that our state provides for disabled veterans.
64 veterans were awarded disability ratings from 10% to 90. This group of men and women will be eligible for VA Health Care, and some of them may also be eligible for other state benefits. 1 surviving spouse was also awarded benefits.
If you would like to help us make a difference, we welcome your support. We spend over $30,000 each month in direct support of the veterans and family members we serve. We transport many homeless veterans to our Norman location each week to help make a difference in the lives of the men and women who have served in the military.
As you know, we are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and are wholly dependent on donations from the people we serve and local grants. We are not funded by a government entity, all the funds it takes to operate our facility and to assist veterans with medical testing, and other expenses come in the form of grants from local companies or other veterans.
For those of you who would like to support the program, your gifts are always appreciated and may be tax-exempt. You can shop items from our Amazon charity list to stock our food pantry and shop AmazonSmile with us as the charity – we will receive .5% of your eligible purchases.
If you are interested in including us in a gift, please contact Lora at 405-550-8806, ext. 101. Monetary donations can be made online or mailed to PO Box 592, Washington, OK, 73093.
