    i know those require membership and when I came off stage and married this last time I do not drink, drug nor play the Guitar any more, but thanks for the thought. Paralyzed
    Veterans is still trying for a grant of some size which has caused the VA to bring my eligibility into question, just as they do any Agent Orange Claim. I do not see them
    yielding. Right now I see only potential disaster. And then too many hands ruin the pie and the PV is trying, and so am I. I believe they mighht get the 37,000 Living Conditions Grant but I cannot see the cost of a cut into four piecew and modified van with a Rear Door Ramp.

    Yes, they are membership organizations. But they are also service organizations. Unless the posts in your area are so clannish that they only serve members.

    There should be a Service Officer tied in with the Legion or VFW who works as a congressional liason. My father did that for many years as a past president of both the local Legion and VFW posts.
