Chairman of the Veteran's Committee's Message
Hello to all Veterans of the Elk Family,

  The month of January is upon us. Let us never forget that during this month in 1968, one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War, the Battle of Hue’, began on January 30, 1968. Between January 30 and March 3 of 1968, in the South Vietnamese City of Hue’, 11 battalions of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), four U.S. Army battalions and three U.S. Marine Corps battalions – totaling 18 battalions – defeated 10 battalions of the People’s Army of Vietnam and the Viet Cong (VC). This marked the beginning of the North Vietnamese Tet Offensive, which coincided with the Vietnamese lunar New Year. By this time, U.S. combat troops had been fighting in Vietnam for three years. Let’s never forget that during the Vietnamese War, over 58,479 Veterans gave their last measure of devotion. Take the opportunity to thank a veteran for his service. Veterans, don’t forget that the Veterans Stand Down will be held at Grace Chapel located on 15th Street West, on February 15, 2020.

How Elks Help Veterans
  The programs for the aid of our government, especially in times of war, have earned our Order the highest commendation from the Government. The destiny of our Order is tied directly to the destiny of our country and, therefore, our support of our Government and the advancement of Patriotism are of the utmost importance to us. Ours was the first organization to propose Flag Day and to get it adopted nationally. Our Order has pledged that "So Long As There Are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective of Elks Will Never Forget Them." Our Order gave a hospital donated by members of the Elks that was given to our Government that became the first V.A. Hospital. We have carried out this pledge and spent thousands of dollars and hours aiding our veterans, hospitalized or otherwise. These are some of the worthwhile programs in which we are engaged, and we hope that after you are a Member, you will want to assist us in this work.
