My fellow veterans, grace and peace to you and your family.

The Veterans for Christ (VFC) have an exciting year planned to support other veterans less fortunate than ourselves. We are kicking off the New Year with a couple of fund raisers. We will be at the Fort Benning and Warner Robin’s Commissary soliciting donations and collecting used cell phones. We will recycle these cell phones and use the proceeds to help fund college scholarships. This year, we will be also raffle a 50” flat screen TV this year to help fund our scholarship, which will be awarded in September during our 6th Anniversary Luncheon. Each raffle ticket will be sold for $xx.

The 2013 VFC $500.00 College Scholarship was awarded to Jaylon Kent, a Savannah State Student at our5th Anniversary Luncheon held on September 21, 2013.

On May 24, prior to Memorial Day, we will be sponsoring a PTSD and Suicide Prevention Seminar, with prominent speakers on these two very important subjects. Other subjects to be discussed include (1) getting your affairs in order, and (2) will preparation.

On November 8, we will have a Veterans Day and Men’s Breakfast at an Atlanta area church. This will be a program with a High School ROTC honor guard performing the flag ceremony and each branch of service recognized.

Later this year, we will be also volunteering our support to the Veterans Affairs Advisory Board of DeKalb County and DAV Chapter 91 to help fulfill their mission.
