We will be gutting the whole upstairs at the O.V.E.R. House on the
weekend of the 29th and 30th of this month. Matt will have a roll off
box in place that weekend. Just got through talking to Matt and we feel
that it would be helping the electric guys a lot to get this done. Then
we could insulate the walls and work on putting in some windows. So if
you can be there that would be great ! Share the word !!!   
Thanks, Let me know if you can make this so
I have an idea of who to will be there.

Many Veterans in need don’t want a hand out, just some assistance. Now, Veterans who live in Nebraska and are in need can get help at a pantry at the Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic, 600 S. 70th St, Lincoln, Neb.

The pantry is open on the first Monday of every month from 10 a.m. to noon, beginning Feb. 4. The pantry will be open Sept. 9 since the first Monday in that month is the Labor Day holiday.

Veterans with a need, especially those who are low-income, near homeless, or homeless who are not living in a shelter are eligible.

The pantry provides items including canned foods, grains, meats and bread. Fresh produce is available when it is in season. Hygiene products are also available upon request.

Veterans must show a valid state identification card or a piece of mail postmarked within the past 60 days that contains their name and Nebraska address.

The pantry is co-sponsored by the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System and the Food Bank of Lincoln. Support for this program was made possible through a grant from the Lincoln Community Foundation on behalf of the Wayne J. and Wanda M. Lillich Charitable Fund and the Veteran Support Fund.

The pantry is not connected with any other community agencies, and will not affect the Veteran’s monthly waiting period for eligibility to other Nebraska pantries.

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department -- the Department of Defense.
