Sample items include, soap, shaving supplies, tooth brushes, tooth paste, canned goods, gift cards for food and/or gas cards.

From the Service Officer: Eligibility for Veterans Pension (Not Veterans Compensation)
Low-income wartime Veterans may qualify for pension if they meet certain service, income and net worth limits set by law, are age 65 or older, or permanently and totally disabled, or a patient in a nursing home receiving skilled nursing care, or receiving Social Security Disability Insurance, or receiving Supplemental Security Income. Generally, a Veteran must have at least 90 days of active duty service, with at least one day during a VA recognized wartime period. The 90 active service requirement does not apply to Veterans discharged from the military due to a service-connected disability.
Note: Veterans may have to meet longer minimum periods of active duty if they entered active duty on or after Sept. 8, 1980, or if they were officers who entered active duty on or after Oct. 16, 1981. The Veteran’s discharge must have been under conditions other than dishonorable and the disability must be the reason other than the Veteran’s own willful misconduct.
Payments are made to bring the Veteran’s total income, including retirement or Social Security to a level set by Congress. Unreimbursed medical expenses may reduce countable income for VA purposes.
From The Chaplain: We wish to offer condolences to the family and friends of Duana Andres, Larry W. McGready, Jerry Modic, Melissa C. Morency, Denzel Pocock, and Vicki Rogers. We would also like to offer get well wishes to those members who have been and are on the sick list.
