Dear Editor,

Thank you to several individuals for their assistance with the success of our recent veteran benefit seminar.

First, we would like to recognize the American Legion Chief Pontiac Post #377 & its Commander, Robert Logan, for the use of the hall and for the hospitality of Denise Elton and Keith Logan during the event.

In addition, thank you to the following participants who also contributed: Pete Sardo and Rick Anderson, from the Great Lakes National Cemetery, who provided the attendees with valuable information on the cemetery’s services; Lauren Chamberlin, Oakland County Veterans Counselor, who spoke about the many benefits our veterans are entitled to; Stuart Pigler from Congressman Mike Rogers, who presented two American flags that were flown over the State Capital Building; Clarkston News for notifying the public of the upcoming event;

Finally, our utmost gratitude to over 60 veterans and spouses who attended this special event.

For those who were not able to attend and would like a free informational packet from the seminar, please contact me at 248-625-5231.
