Brunch on Monday's @ Columbia Restaurant
 
On Monday, May 3'rd'  VBC had the honor of attending a Veteran's Brunch  at the Columbia Restaurant in Columbia (on Route 66) that was hosted by Veteran Gerry Wright to raise awareness about Agent Orange.  Every Monday veterans gather at 11:00 a.m. to share the latest
Agent Orange information updates, the progress on the Agent Orange memorial that will be built in Andover's Veterans Memorial Park, CT and what progress has been made on current state and federal legislation.  The wonderful food, service and camaraderie are an added bonus.
 
Gerry's mission to share the facts about the effects of exposure to Agent Orange is personal, as it has affected him, his family and so many  fellow veterans he has both served with and has met while traveling across the country to share this information with veterans, veterans groups, legislators, the DAV,  the V.A. and American Legions Posts. Research has shown it not only affects the veteran, but also their children, grandchildren  and down at least 5 generations. Come learn more.  To  DONATE: Donations can be dropped off at American Legion Post 95, 18 Main St. Hebron or mailed to Gerry Wright, American Legion Post 95, PO Box 95, Hebron CT 06248. Donations are tax deductible   For more information: https://youtu.be/Xvec5hQsfF0
