VETERANS’ CORNER: The differences between Memorial, Veterans days

(Continued)

I am extremely proud to have led the AmVets organization over the past four years, trying to meet the needs of all veterans, past and present, as well as their families and survivors in our community. We are fortunate to have many organizations such as the American Legion, VFW, DAV and their auxiliaries. including veterans representative commissions that take up the cause to ensure our veterans are taken care of and given information in health care, education and benefits.

There is more to be done and I encourage everyone to get involved and join a service organization or volunteer. Also, the hospitals are full of veterans who may never leave their rooms and would enjoy a visit with a smile and conversation. Demonstrate your support to our veterans by giving a few hours of your time when available.

Come to Rams Stadium in Mineral Wells on Monday for the annual Veterans Day recognition. American Legion Post 75 always presents a fabulous show, including participation by local school children, honored guests and speakers. The festivities begin at 10:30 a.m.

Speak to you again next week.

Jim Vines is commander of AmVets Post 133.
