With the approval of the Post Executive Committee it is my intent to share how we provide direct assistance to fellow Veterans in need. In order to respect those Veterans privacy I am going to use their initials.
On August 26th the Post received a request for assistance from Army Veteran JB. JB and his daughter has left an unhealthy family environment in the Houston area and needed assistance with a place to stay until additional funds arrived on Monday. Our Post assisted the Veteran with temporary housing for the weekend and followed up with JB over the days that followed in order to ensure he was seen at the VA Outpatient Clinic. Post 447 also assisted with temporary housing and Post 83 staff have offered assistance with permanent housing as well.
It’s part of what the Legion is all about – Veterans helping Veterans with a hand up and I’m honored to have been that hand for our Post.
