Web letter: Donations brought help to disabled veterans

The Indiana Disabled American Veterans Chapter 40 of Allen County wishes to thank all who donated in support of our local veterans in 2012. We wish to thank you not only for the monetary donations, but the donations of recovery beds, power wheelchairs, coats, blankets, and other goods to help us support our local veterans who may have been struggling this holiday season.

Your donations helped the DAV distribute $5,438 to eight local veterans and $7,000 to four local veterans support organizations during this holiday season. We are looking forward to helping more veterans in Allen and Whitley counties.

We encourage you to get more information about our local DAV chapter by watching a YouTube video ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeoSWYT1dcE) posted by Dale Parrish, host of the Local Access Channel show called “American Veteran.” Our commander, Matt Plum, does an excellent job explaining our local DAV chapter.

Again, thank you and we hope you had a blessed holiday season and a very happy New Year!

JASON E. SMITH public relations chairman Indiana DAV Chapter 40
