We are saddened by the passing of Betty White.

Not only was she an amazing actress, she also served during WWII as a member of the American Women's Voluntary Services.

A true legend on and off the screen.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR COLLEGE AND TRADE SCHOOLS:
The Beirut Veterans of America is pleased to once again announce scholarship applications are now being accepted. Any high school senior, college or trade school student planning on attending any college or trade-school in the Fall of 2022 may apply for a $1,000 scholarship. The online application may be found at https://www.beirutveterans.org/scholarship. Applications must be received by January 31, 2022.

Three $1,000 scholarships were awarded in 2020, and two in 2021. The 2021 recipients’ stories may be found at https://www.beirutveterans.org/bva-scholarship-winners.

The Beirut Veterans of America is 501(c)3 not for profit corporation that promotes remembering those US service personnel who served in or around Beirut, Lebanon as Peacekeepers, or in other humanitarian role, since 1958; specifically, those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while doing so. On October 23, 1983 alone, 220 Marines, 18 Sailors and 3 Soldiers perished when the Marine Barracks was attacked by a su***de bomber, an act of cowardice often seen as the first major catastrophe of the modern terrorist era. More than 30 others would lose their lives in this first battle against terrorism during that period, with others perishing before and since.

An applicant does not need to do more than complete the application process as set forth within the above-noted link.

Rest in Peace Sir

Rest In Peace....Senator Robert Joseph Dole died early this morning in his sleep. At his death, at age 98, he had served the United States of America faithfully for 79 years. He also kept his commitment to fellow war veterans, spending Saturdays well into his 90s greeting veterans who flew to Washington, courtesy of the Honor Flight Network. Answering letters from veterans and meeting them in person gave him more satisfaction than anything else. Bob Dole's politics were characterized by a commitment to the disadvantaged, whether it was spearheading the passage of the landmark 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act or combating hunger and poverty. **MILITARY SERVICE:
Dole registered for the Army in 1942 and was a second lieutenant when he was sent to Italy in 1944. The following year, while attempting to rescue an army radioman, Dole got caught in a German machine gun attack that cost him a kidney, shattered his right shoulder and damaged his neck and spine, leaving him temporarily paralyzed from the neck down. In a letter to his parents at the time, the Army wrote, "At the present time it would appear that his recovery is somewhat questionable." But Dole beat the odds, and after years of treatment, had regained much of his movement.
His arms never fully recovered — his left remained partially numb for the rest of his life, and he never got back the use of his right arm. He went on to become elected a senator and served in the Senate from 1969 until 1996.

Shames was the first member of his unit to set foot in the Dachau concentration camp in Germany just days after its liberation, according to the obituary.

Col. Edward Shames, the last surviving officer of the historic World War II parachute infantry regiment of the US Army known as Easy Company, died Friday at the age of 99.

Ever wondered how the Sub Zero Mission got its start?🤔

During the winter of 2009, a couple of old high school buddies, who had spent time in the Marines, set out to help a couple of homeless veterans by supplying sleeping bags to keep them warm during the cold northeast Ohio winter.

Al Raddatz and Del Bethel thought they could do more, so they spread the word through social media about how they needed others to help. Soon they had collected 50 sleeping bags and distributed them directly to the area homeless.

So, it was at Leroy VFW Post 7939 that the Sub Zero Mission was born along with the motto

“Nobody should freeze to death in America.”

In 2011 the Sub Zero Mission became an official 501(c)3 Non-Proffit and now delivers more than 15,000 warming items during the winter months each year.

Visit our website today to learn more about how you can support our mission.

This December, Arlington National Cemetery will host Wreaths Across America with two separate events to honor our nation’s heroes and their family members.
On Sunday, Dec. 12, family pass holders will have a separate opportunity from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to lay wreaths at their loved ones’ graves prior to public access. No registration is required.

Arlington National Cemetery will remain open to the public, however vehicle access and wreath distribution will be granted to family pass holders only. Family pass holder vehicles and pedestrians are encouraged to enter through the main entrance on Memorial Ave. Please bring a government issued photo ID for the initial security screening and note that face coverings are required indoors. Family pass holder vehicles may also enter at the Old Post Chapel gate, if you are a DoD ID card holder. Walking family pass holders may also enter through the Ord & Weitzel gate, closest to the Rosslyn metro stop. Wreaths will be distributed at the funeral queuing lanes, near the administration building to those with family passes in their possession.

Then on Saturday, Dec. 18, the public will have the opportunity to participate in Wreaths Across America from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. FREE registration is required at https://learn.wreathsacrossamerica.org/anc2021. These FREE tickets will be required at entry for a designated gate and time.

We encourage you to use public transportation. More information about parking and logistics will be shared next week. Pedestrian access, along with your accompanying free ticket, is available at the main entrance on Memorial Ave., the Ord & Weitzel gate, and South Gate.
