Local Vet Commissioner Pleased with Recent Legislation

Posted: Saturday, May 8th, 2010 at 7:39 am

A Washington County Veteran’s Commissioner is proud of legislation passed this year that provides more benefits and services to military families. Terry Phillips says many of issues addressed might seem rather minor to someone who hasn’t served, or is from a military family. However, he says these are not “flag waving issues,” but specific, common sense things that can be done to help vets and their families. Phillips says one of the biggest challenges for his organization is making people aware of the resources that are available to them.
