National Veterans Service Committee Activities

July 2021

by Nancy De Vito

Thank God life as we know it is coming back to normal. Our Veterans committee had our first fishing trip on June 16th we were joined by 14 Airman/Air Women from Joint Base McGuire. Sadly, due to Covid our Vets in nursing homes were unable to attend this trip. We could not ask for better weather not to hot the sun was shining with an occasionally a nice breeze. They caught the most fish ever or should I say the girls caught all the keepers.

Thank you to the ideal boat for taking our military out for the day of fishing, the coast guard station for allowing them to park, and to Mike, Rich, Gus, Irene, Leesha, and Karen for their help.

Once again thank you to Stephanie for sending out the birthday cards to Willow Springs, Menlo Park, and Rose Garden. You are truly one of a kind!

Our next fishing trip will be on July 21, joining us will be Veterans from all over. They are grateful for the opportunity, and we are thankful to them for their service.

Base is opening so there is a good chance we may need help at their family picnic. Fingers crossed!

God Heal America

So long as there are Veterans,
the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks will never forget them!
