Commander’s Call

We are again going to offer scholarships to high school seniors and undergraduates. Applications for seniors are available at the high school guidance office. Apps for undergraduates are available at the WAVP, or call 319-352-3012.

Veterans’ Employment Services: Any veteran looking for employment opportunities can now visit with a representative at the WAVP. Call Jeremy Rosol (319-235-2123 ext. 41314) for an appointment. Visit with this rep. to determine eligibility for several available programs.

Veterans’ Benefits: Before you automatically dismiss this idea because you feel ineligible, be aware that approximately $50 million are distributed to Iowa veterans every month! When filing for ANY benefit claims, make certain to get a service officer involved. Any incorrect or incomplete answers or forms will result in automatic exclusion and several months delay. For a service officer’s assistance, there are numerous phone numbers available: 1-833-839-8387 (national), 515-323-7545 (Des Moines office), 319-339-7063 (Iowa City VA  Center). This info is also available at WAVP.

To those already enrolled in the VA Medical system, you can pick up a permanent ID card at the Waterloo VA medical center.

The US Army Field Band & Soldiers Chorus will present a program on March 20, 2020, at 7 pm, at Gallagher Bluedorn. This event is free and open to the public. Stop at WAVP for regular monthly fish fry before heading to Cedar Falls!
