I would like to this opportunity to introduce you to one of the resources that the VFW offers.
Our Post Service Officer;
A few years back I was at the V.A. Hospital trying to navigate my way through a pile of paperwork for my claim. After spending several days doing paperwork that I didn't understand how to fill out, I went home that night thoroughly frustrated with unfinished paperwork.
The next Wednesday night we had our monthly post meeting. At the Post meeting I was introduced to our Post Service Officer, Mike Labovitch. A good Post Service Officer knows the correct way to cut though the maze of red tape. Mike was able to get the correct paperwork done and submitted in one day. Because Mike not only was the post Service Officer, but at the time he was the Dakota County Service Officer, He since then has retired from the County position, but he is still our Post Service Officer. And he is there to assist you with your claims or Military related problems. Mike can give you the correct guidance for your situation. It is because of him that I have a service connected rating. Thank you Mike for helping me and thank you for being our Post Service Officer.
Mike can help you to. If you are recently discharged or have something from years ago that is just now showing up. Give Mike a call Mike can be reached at (651) 457-6868 or through the Post at (651)-455-1505
POST SURGEON: All kinds of Hospital equipment are available from canes and wheelchairs to bathroom accessories. They are free to all that need them for as long as you need them. Just return them when you are done with them. We also take donations of medical equipment. Call Larry Muller at 651-455-5975.
District meeting was held at our post on January 4th. Even though the weather was cold we still had a great turn out. Almost all of the Posts were represented.
In closing, the members of Post 295 would like to congratulate those celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Wish a speedy recovery to those who are ill and our condolences to the families who have lost a family member.
Yours in Comradeship,
Marc Anderson, Commander
