Veterans Health Benefits Seminar

American Legion Post #137
Jacksonville, Florida

We held our first ever Veterans Health Benefits Seminar in Florida at American Legion Post #137 in Jacksonville, Florida on Monday, May 16, 2011   It was an exciting and successful morning.  Our host, American Legion Post 137 provided an exceptional venue.  The Seminar was held in the Moon building (named for a fromer legionnaire); a free standing building adjacent to the Post swimming pool


Victoria Rone (l), from the Jacksonville National Cemetery, Gary Shiffert (c), Jacksonville VA Outpatient Clinic and Maxine Lawrence (r), of TriCare, spoke to Seminar guests, answered their questions and also exchanged thoughts among themselves.


Donald Rait (l), Florida SHINE Volunteer Coordinator and A. J. Johnson (r), Clyde Lessen Florida State Veterans Nursing Home, drew on their years of experience, both as veterans themselves and advocates, to address the numerous questions the crowd had for them.
