Forget-Me-Not drive will help fund veteran services


Thank You, Whidbey. We at the Disabled American Veterans just concluded our Forget-Me-Not drive this Veterans Day.

I am proud to say that it was a great success thanks to the volunteers who helped pass out the little blue flowers and the generous people who donated.

With these donations it will help to keep our van on the road assisting veterans to go down to the VA Medical Center in Seattle. Some funds will be used in training our chapter service officers so we can better serve the veterans in the community.

I am so proud and pleased with the continued support this community gives to veterans and all veteran organizations. A hearty thank you and well done to all.
