Veterans AssistanceJames Wilson, speaker at the recent Vietnam Era Veterans meeting at American Legion Post #23 in Shelbyville, is presented with the club’s Vietnam Era mug by veteran Howard Pinkston as veteran Tom Taylor looks on. Wilson is the VetCorps Prevention Coordinator with the Coffee County Anti-Drug Coalition. He spoke about many veteran assistance programs that are available for returning war veterans. These programs were not familiar to the Vietnam War veterans to whom he spoke because they were not available to those veterans returning after serving during the Vietnam period. These programs are very beneficial to veterans.
