It is a time to keep all that have served so gallantly. Protecting our freedoms.
The Memorial Day parades through out Vermont is for everyone to take time out to remember and reflect on those that sacrificed so much for us to be free.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
Effective Monday, March 23rd, 2020 the VFW Service Office will be closed until further notice.
I will be working from home and will have access to email on a daily basis.
Email is the only form of communication that will be available.
My email address is as follows:
I can send and receive documents electronically but will not be able to send or receive faxes
I will be electronically submitting and tracking claims for our offices’ s constituents.
If a veteran has documents or claims to file and cannot do so electronically with me then there are ways for a veteran to submit in their own as follows:
Fax claims and or supporting documents to 844-531-7818
Please itemize your documents being faxed on a cover sheet and wait for a return receipt via fax with a confirmation number on it.
Send claims and or supporting documents as follows:
Department of Veterans Affairs
Evidence Intake Center
PO Box 4444
Janesville, WI 53547
I will attempt to call in a retrieve messages. It is requested that no veteran leave a voice message as I will not be returning calls from my home or cell phone. But if a message is left, please spell out clearly and slowly the email address in which to connect with you.
It is unknown how long this will last and I will keep the Dept well informed as I learn about a return date in the future.
I will attempt to come into the office weekly to retrieve postal mail and voice messages.
During this time veterans are encouraged to take control of their claims and submit on their own as much as possible.
Thank you all for your understanding and please stay healthy and safe as the COVID-19 issue passes through our communities.

Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
