The Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center is returning on 14 June 2017 to conduct its third Community Town Hall in the area since the establishment of the quarterly requirement a couple of years back.  It is part of an attempt by the VA to regain the trust among the veterans it serves.  Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center services 19 counties, to include one in New York.  The service area requires distributing the quarterly meetings over a wide area or we would have more of these useful events.  For details, see: Read the rest of this entry »

LVMAC Tidbit — Do You Know About Operation Homefront’s Mission2Honor?

May 19, 2017

Click on image to learn more.

During Military Appreciation Month, Operation Homefront is asking for your help in various ways to recognize our military families and thank them for their service.  It is more than about fundraising.

As a note, this is one national organization with a primary mission of serving military families (and recently disabled veterans) that has actually helped Lehigh Valley families through its programs; and it manages its money well.   We believe that for any veterans or veterans-related organization to have relevancy to our area, it needs boots on the ground.  This one does.  It regularly attends our meetings and its local field office is Souderton.  It just happens it is also looking for a new Lehigh Valley coordinator.
