As a disabled veteran with all of these benefits I'm supposed to have, I', quite surprised that there is nothing out there to help a disabled veteran to get his/her vehicle fixed in order to make appointments.

Hey Dean, have you been in contact with the local American Legion or Veteran services office?
Dean M. Manley September 04, 2013 at 12:49 PM
The local veteran service office doesn't know of any resources, and since I now have a quote on a price, I can start askind around for some donations. But my complaint still stands. A disabled person still needs more resources.

OK, got my quote, started asking around, no luck yet.

The American Legion does offer assistance with car repairs to needy veterans. Also, if you're currently working for an employer with a union contract, Union Veterans may offer assistance.

Hi Dean, the Dixon VFW has helped Veterans many times in need of financial assistance. We meet the Third Thursday of every month at the Veterans Hall at 7:00 PM or you can contact Commander Brock McMahon before that. To my knowledge, I have not seen where a need has been turned down.

Sure thing, I'll see Brock this Friday at the Legion as I'm serving dinner there every Friday.
Dean M. Manley September 05, 2013 at 07:12 PM
In fact, I'll talk to both the Legion and Brock.
