Now that I have all the information I am letting all know that my husband Randy Taplin passed away on Monday July 15 from complications of Agent Orange exposure. He was my best friend. His service will be on Wednesday, July 24th at 1pm at the National Cemetery Annex here in Roseburg.

As the New Year is set to begin in a couple of days, I find myself remembering those who served with me in the military. I have found a community of veterans who share my past here in Roseburg. I am optimistic about the future because I am surrounded by my friends and family here in Roseburg. I am a Vietnam Veteran and I enlisted in the Regular Army to serve my country. I have no regrets. Wishing everyone a very easy journey this coming year.

At our general membership meeting a couple of months ago, a veteran asked if we had a directory of veterans who are contractors or other vendors in the Roseburg area. Not having one, we started to ask members if they would get the word out and we now have one plumber that a member has highly recommended. His name is Michael Brewer and he is a veteran that works under the contractor's license of Rick Osborn Construction. You can contact him through the office at 541-643-6567, or you can send me a message via this page and I can put you in contact with him. Jack Flowers is very happy with the work he did for him and gives him a big thumbs up!

I wish all my Vietnam War comrades Happy Thanksgiving. Many years we were not home with family to celebrate. Those that are away from home this week I am very thankful that they are defending us and our way of life. My God Bless them and the family they represent.
