On 29 January 2013 Hometown Veterans will hold a breakfast at the Senior Center. The event begins at 8:00 a.m. All Veterans in the area are invited to participate in the breakfast free of charge. Guests are welcome to come but they will be charged a moderate cost for the breakfast.
This month we invited Leon E. Chamberlain III, from the Wyoming Mobile Vet Center to talk at the breakfast. As a member of the National Guard, Major Chamberlain has first hand knowledge of battlefield injuries, and the effects they bring with them. The speaker will discuss his experience in treating men, and women in the battlefield, and discuss the Wyoming Mobile Vet Center, where he is currently attached.
After his speech Leon Chamberlain will be glad to discuss his experience, and answer any questions from veterans in the audience. After the breakfast is over he will hold private meetings with any veteran who needs assistance, and discuss further services by the Vet Center.
