I had the pleasure of being one of many who welcomed the students of Osakasayama, Japan, the other day. As our city representative sitting on the City Council and chairman of the Veteran Advocates of Ore-Ida, it gave me pride to welcome them to the United States and especially Ontario. Kaito Kinoshita, Misako Nikano, Kanna Tsuji, Arisa Mori and Mizuki Kinosita all traveled here for the 40th year of sharing experiences and understanding different cultures. The Sister City Committee is accepting names who wish to be included in the delegation going to Japan this summer. Call Cathy Yasuda, (208) 739-2360, or Joe Dominick at (541) 881-1121, for information. Understanding cultural differences just might make a difference in world peace!
We have identified more than 3,000 veterans in this immediate area who have benefits offered by the federal and state governments and many not claiming them. Remember it is your responsibility to apply and not the government’s responsibility to notify you of your benefits. Even if you have had a bad experience in the past with applying for benefits please relook and give it another chance. You have paid for your benefits with your service, use them. If you’re not sure where to go then stop into Veteran Advocates of Ore-Ida (VAOI) and they might have the name of a person or organization to contact.
