Veterans Info/Expo

An Idea is Born

There are many that need this assistance.  Dignity Funeral Services was there to help us!  Big Thanks to them!  
1. Lady with an ill elderly Veteran Husband, needed plans for his future funeral but her real problem was that she had an elder relative in a Northern State that died from the Corona-Virus.
2. Lady has a friend that is stuck in Germany due to the Corona-Virus her father died here in the states due to the Corona-Virus and she cannot get back for the funeral...we helped to get the deceased frozen so when his daughter gets back from Germany she can see her father and have a proper burial. 
3. Wife of a Veteran who recently passed away cannot get her husbands VA paperwork. We will assist her this coming week to obtain her needed paperwork. This happens so often...they do not think ahead, they need guidance.
4. A Navy Female Officer, retired 83 years old lost her 62 year old daughter due to cancer. The body was shipped to New York State.  On route the Death Certificate was lost, misplaced the body never made it to the Funeral on the day it was suppose to. It arrived two days late. Nothing we could of done even though we were the ones who
helped the mother with this situation. She came out to thank us.

The above were the highlights and there were others needing help.  We will select the next Veterans Info-Expo when we see the Corona-Virus under control.

Please donate help us as we want to continue to share this valuable information with our veterans around the United States.

Thank You To All That Were Part Of Our Veterans Info-Expo Event Last Year!
