Women Veterans: Chair

From the Chairman

Deb Wheeler
Women Veterans Chair

April 2022

When we think of Spring, we love the time change, but Spring Forward allows everyone to reset and finish this year with a sense of a job well done.

We have had several male and female veterans transitioning to becoming independent and no longer homeless. This is a massive right of passage, This is why I believe in touching base with your local veteran homeless shelters, especially those that house our sisters. Check to see if they have a thrift store to help with expenses and allow veterans an opportunity to shop upon their exit. A starter kit is a wonderful project for a Legion Family to take on. Cleaning supplies, toiletries, shower rod and curtain, small appliances, flatware, dishes, lamps, small tables, tool starter kit with a hammer, nails, screwdrivers, wrench, pot and pans, and more. They do not have the extra cash to purchase these necessities. We need to help them with their transition.
