President’s Message December 2021

We are the Vietnam Veterans of America, Charles S Kettles Chapter 310, Washtenaw County, Michigan

 harrisonIn December, as we do every year, your chapter donated thousands of dollars worth of under garments to the VA hospital in Ann Arbor.  It is a need that they have come to count on us to fill,  We also dropped off some very nice embroidered shirts as presents for the patients there.  In past years we have distributed them in person in a party-like atmosphere but due to Covid-19 we have to rely on the staff to pass them out.


  We are able to do this and a lot more thanks to the generous support of our donors who responded to our annual appeal.  Because of their gifts we will be able to do even more in the next year.

Next month we will be furnishing a brand new apartment for a homeless veteran in cooperation with Dexter Faith In Action.  Joe Palazzolo is leading our efforts on this project.  The last I knew he was still looking for bedroom furniture and area rugs.

We do this work for veterans because of who we are.  We are who we are because we were who we were and did what we did.  If you know someone else who did what we did (answered the call) and served in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975 or any duty location between August 5, 1964  and May 7, 1975 ask them to join us.  They can go to our website at https://www.vva310.org/about-us/join-us for all of the information they will need.  We have been doing well at attracting new members and with your help we can continue to grow.

Until next time, stay safe and stay proud.

Stan Harrision, President
