The GAO looked into various available data and found that active-duty service members used more than $21 million in SNAP benefits from September 2014 through August 2015 in commissaries. But the information is not broken down further to show the number of service members involved, rank or status.
Defense officials still struggle to get accurate data on the number of active-duty service members who are using food assistance programs, such as SNAP and WIC, according to government auditors.

Yesterday, at ‪#‎VFWConvention‬, VA personnel at the Veterans Walk-In Claims Clinic were able to assist 80 veterans with their claims and grant 12 claims on the spot, resulting in approximately $75,000 in benefits!
If you have questions on your claim make sure to stop by their booth before 3 p.m. today..

The Vander Clute Memorial Motorcycle Riders are on their way to Charlotte!
The Vander Clute Memorial Motorcycle Ride is an annual event that serves to honor the memory of VFW advocate Howard E. Vander Clute Jr., a former VFW Commander-in-Chief and motorcycle enthusiast who passed away in 2000. Many participants ride from across the country to be a part of the check presentation at the ‪#‎VFWConvention‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
