As you may know from reading my blogs in the past, I feel that one of the most wonderful perks of my job as a Veterans’ disability attorney is getting to meet Veterans around our community. I am involved in several different organizations, where I am surrounded by many remarkable Veterans from all branches of the military.
I am lucky enough to be able to hear the stories of these Veterans. Recently, one of the Marines from the PL Wilson Detachment of the Marine Corps League, Horace “Bubba” Jackson, was honored by our local news. Bubba is one of the “Chosin Few.” The Chosin Few are the Marines who survived nearly overwhelming Chinese attacks at the battle of the Chosin Reservoir in what is now North Korea. You can read of Bubba’s experience and watch the interview here.
I feel privileged to listen to their stories. The South Alabama Veterans Council “has succeeded in bringing together representatives from many of the Veterans groups in Southwest Alabama in a forum that has allowed ideas, plans, and concerns to be shared and discussed. It is an informal organization of Veterans and members of the community that are interested in the issues that concern Veterans and their families.” At the SAVC meetings, I’ve learned so many stories and feel extremely honored to know some of these amazing Veterans. I’ve also learned of new programs to help our Veterans, like the possibility of a completely revamped Veteran’s Court in Mobile County.
I was also privileged to hear the Mobile Bay Area Veteran of the Year, Lt. Col. Frank Barrow (Ret.), and the Mobile Bay Area Patriot of the Year, Lt. Gen. Willie J. Williams (Ret.) at the Veteran’s Day Luncheon hosted by the Mobile Bay Area Veterans Day Commission.
As always, I want to thank all our Veterans for their service to our country. I want our Veterans to know that Gardberg and Kemmerly will continue to help in any way possible. We are privileged to represent you in your fight to obtain benefits.
