Douglas County Veterans Viewpoint: Information is available for veterans

January 25, 2015 — 

I’ve written about the importance of education as a foundation for being a good citizen. I understand that, sometimes, acquiring the information needed to make good choices can be tough. We should all be thankful for the many resources available to veterans, their families and supporters.

When people ask me for resources, I begin with the Douglas County Veterans Service Office. The helpful and knowledgeable staff at the VSO helps provide information on veterans’ claims, educational benefits, burial benefits, home loan certificates of eligibility, Department of Veterans Affairs medical care, Oregon VA home loans and a host of other resources. If VSO staff can’t answer your questions, they will know someone who can.

Douglas County Veterans Viewpoint: America’s past helps shape the future

January 11, 2015 — 

With the New Year upon us, it is appropriate to see how the past can help shape the future. I said before that one of the great things about serving in our military is the opportunity to travel and explore.

With that in mind, and some precious time off during the holidays, I spent time in Virginia to see firsthand where America happened, to see the homes of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, two Founding Fathers of the United States and top figures in the American Revolution.
