Veterans unite back home
To be able to gather more support when rallying to receive proper health benefits, veterans form groups and help each other when they get home. One of these groups is the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association, where Henry Alfaro is the president. Lompoc Record has more:
More than 35 years after his war service ended, the outspoken leader of Chapter 982, who still suffers from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fights to get health benefits and other assistance for veterans of a variety of wars.
It’s people like Alfaro and his work through the VVA that the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) are once again looking to recruit.
The department announced a new program this week called Operation Welcome Home, which is designed to help all California veterans re-acclimate themselves after their discharge. It’s focus is to get the state’s veterans all of the benefits they’ve earned through their service to the country.
“The real solution is all of you, who will be a seed to get information out there,” CalVet Undersecretary Rocky Chavez told local vets who attended at meeting this week in Santa Maria.
