Something new in helping WW2 vets, hasn't been made public as yet, check google for WW2 vet benifits, They say there is more than what is printed there

Would it be listed on the gov't. VA benefits site? Posted from there last week because they described some benefits available to Vet's that aren't commonly known about.

Have a friend who is a Korean war Vet who didn't know benefits had been extended to them. Has been a real boon because of medical care now available for him.

Take care.

Mr. Midway, I searched and found some articles related to the Filipino vets. You are probably talking about something else I would guess?

The local honor flight group is sending their largest group to DC, 80 on this plane. Good to see vets get recognition for a job well done.

and.....Sandy Deraps, a Gold Star Mom, was heading up that group...their Marine Moms Group helped raise money for that local Honor Flight your talking about Gene. She said in one night they raised almost 5 grand....and found 3 local WW2 Vets to send.

Sandy and her husband Dale are friends of ours.
They are a wonderful family. Dale is a Marine Vet himself. Their son was killed about 3 yrs ago.

Excuse me again Mr. Midway, I am at Pilot Grove, a little bigger than Center.

I work up in that area a good bit. Picked up a quarter of beef at the Center locker a few years ago. Friend from Frankford used them to butcher.

I'll try to remember next time I come up that way.
