One of our U.S. Army Vietnam Veterans was recently awarded a 100% rating for his service-connected disabilities.  He was severely injured when the tank he was in was destroyed, killing everyone except him.  During the past 50 years, he had never been approved for any VA benefits.  After he came to see us, he became a staunch supporter of what we do for veterans; and he started bringing veterans to our facility one carload at a time for over three years.  Thank You, Walter Whitfield, for your military service along with your service to other veterans and their families.  As many of you have become aware of our transformation into using a digital format to assist veterans, I want you to know that we are doing this to help keep you safe...

Each of us at the Veterans Foundation wants you to know that we are processing veterans' and surviving spouse claims that have been mailed to us as quickly as possible. For us to continue our mission of helping veterans and their families, a new, safe way to assist individuals is necessary. This week, we continue our move to the digital age.

As many of you know, we are working to assist veterans and surviving spouses electronically using VetPro a software platform that allows us to submit claims electronically. Last week VetPro instructors from California provided training for over 30 of our volunteers. As most of us from my generation are set in our ways of doing things, we were extremely impressed with their staff’s easy-to-understand instruction and training. We know that we will soon be able to increase our productivity by using their product. We are immensely proud of our Board of Directors’ leadership and guidance for our Veterans Foundation. With these new tools and equipment, many veterans and surviving spouses will be assisted with their VA benefits claims without...

  ​Over the many years we have been assisting veterans and surviving spouses, we have met people from all walks of life. One of the veterans from Georgia, who we have been helping the last couple of years, visited us last week. While talking to him I asked him what he did in the Marines. He told me he was a boxer for several years while serving. When I asked him if he was a good one, he pulled out a folder that showed he was on the USA Olympic team representing our country during the 1992 games.  He also produced a picture of his team that was taken in the White House with the Vice President.  It looks to me like we do have the best job in town being able to serve our veterans and their families. We are immensely proud to say that one of...
