Anthony DiLisio Clinton-Macomb Carrier Annex. You may recall that Anthony was the 20-year-old Marine who was killed in Afghanistan on May 30, Anthony was also the nephew of chapter member Greg Bowman. Following the presentation of colors by the 1st Bn., 24th Marine Honor Guard, a host of speakers made presentations, with Congresswoman Candice Miller being the keynote speaker. Ms. Miller made reference to Chapter 154 s attendance which was very much appreciated. The event was well attended by both the family of Anthony, as well as other dignitaries and media. This was a fitting tribute to a young man who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. Safari Club Honors Iraq War Veteran A t the February 23 Safari Club International banquet, the sponsoring Novi Chapter planned to honor an Iraq War veteran who was part of the Wounded Warrior program. SCI contacted our honor guard and asked if they would come downtown to the MGM Grand Hotel and post colors for the opening ceremony. They also requested that the honoree sit with us at our table. Marine Sergeant Major Bennie Benton was wounded in Iraq when he stepped on an IED. He was injured on one side of his body, but has recovered sufficiently so that you d never know he d been wounded. He has returned to active duty. The Safari Club recognized him in a special ceremony, and Chapter 154 also presented Sgt. Major Benton one of our medals. Car Show Alert # Donn Sinclair ~ Car Show chairman H ard as it is to think about while there's still snow on the ground, the chapter car show is on the horizon, (Saturday, August 24). Entry forms are available at the Vet Center. Donations for the raffle table are always welcome. Drop them at the Vet Center or call me, I'll be glad to pick up any and all. Some members have expressed interest in helping out with the show, and have asked me what they can do. The very best way, the biggest help you can provide, is to sponsor a trophy. Awards are our biggest expense. The more that are sponsored, the fewer we have to buy, the bigger profit for the chapter. Sponsor forms are at the Vet Center and I always have a few with me. Your name will appear on the award you sponsor, (if you wish), and you have the option of choosing the car/truck that receives it. If you'd like to help, please consider sponsoring an award.

2 President s Message T he second round of nominations took place at the March chapter meeting, with some additional folks deciding to jump in the race. Thanks to all who are willing to make a difference in this chapter. Of course, April brings the final round of nominations and the election of your new officers for the next year. The ballot is set, but not closed. Remember that any nominations made at the April meeting will be treated as write-in candidates. As has been the practice in the past, elections will take place at the Vet Center the day of the chapter meeting, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The elections will continue at the chapter meeting that evening during the meeting agenda. You must be a paid-up member and have a valid chapter ID card to be able to cast a vote at either the Vet Center or the chapter meeting. Following the tally by the committeepersons, the results will be announced at the meeting. We re coming out of the winter doldrums this month, and that means we ll start getting busy with activities. The memorial will be back on the road beginning the end of the month. The route for the Ride for Freedom has been finalized for June 23, with the destination being Freedom Hill Park... hooray! Our memorial at the park has been inspected and should be in fine shape for attendees coming to the ride. As I mentioned last month, volunteers will be needed and will be critical to making this event a success, so mark the date on your calendars and plan to lend a hand. Keep watching for other events coming up. There s going to be plenty going on, with lots of opportunity to showcase our chapter. All of you are our best ambassadors, and are why we re where we re at. Keep up the good work.

SICK CALL Contact Ron Drdul or If you know of a death or illness of a chapter member or their family, please notify Ron Drdul so that we may get the information in the Boo Coo News in a timely manner. Chapter member Haydn Poore had open heart surgery two weeks ago. He is home, on the mend, doing well, but will be unable to do any physical labor. Second Vice President Woody Horne had a sixth surgery on his left eye. He is unable to build up enough pressure to have vision in it, and the doctors are still working to see how to solve the problem. Denny (Gadget) Kushner has been diagnosed with something called Canadian Fungus, some kind of airborne spore that gets in your lungs, and it is spreading across the country. The mortality rate according to articles on the internet is 25%. Dave (Chief) Lehrman will be having a procedure on his heart in Florida on March 29th. He just got the word today that he is a candidate for this surgery. It is a ligation of the top of the heart. The doctors say this will take care of his shortness of breath and his lack of energy. They say once this is done he will never have a heart attack or another stroke. He also will be having hip surgery when he gets back home. The replacement they did 2 years ago is now loose. Tom Duff's wife had knee replacement surgery. Jim Watts had knee replacement surgery and is back home, recovering quickly. Mike Couwlier was hospitalized at McLaren for pneumonia. Please keep all of these folks in your thoughts and prayers. Michigan Veteran of the Year T he Michigan State Commander's Group is accepting nominations for the Michigan Veteran of the Year If you know of someone within our organization, or even another veteran group, who should be considered for this recognition, please complete an application and return no later than May 31. The criteria for submission are on the application. To get an application, contact Brian Bobek at or stop in at the Vet Center. Hospital Report Tom Duff, Chairman Carol Gernand reporting I n Tom Duff s absence, the following people went on the monthly visit to the VA Hospital: Pete Gernand, Carol Gernand, Bob Steward, John Hages, Frank Cline, Joe Spencer and Tom Puruleski. While there, they visited with 21 vets in A-5, 23 vets in A-4, and a total of 24 vets in the dialysis and psychiatric wards. The usual compliment of goodies were passed out to the vets, which is always appreciated by the vets. The next visit to the hospital will be on April 10, leaving the Vet Center at 8 a.m. Veteran Mentors Needed M entors of veterans are needed in the Macomb County Circuit Court and District Court 41-B. The courts are operated by Circuit Court Judge Mark Switalski and District Court Judge Carrie Fuca. The only requirement for the mentor is that he or she be a veteran of the Armed Forces. The work of the mentor does not take up a lot of time. Each judge holds Veteran Court one day each month. Judge Fuca holds court on the second Tuesday of each month and Judge Switalski holds court on the third Thursday of each month. The only other work involved is having telephone conversations with the mentee once or twice a month. The telephone calls are to make sure the mentee is following his or her orders of probation, such as drug testing, group therapy, etc. Those interested in becoming mentors can contact LTC John Walus (U.S. Army ret.) at (586) or at Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter Boo Coo News APRIL Page 4

5 ASSOCIATES OF VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA The Mission and Vision of the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. is to advance the work of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. through cooperative projects and/or programs, to facilitate, enhance and improve communication with our members and the general public and to continue legislative efforts to ensure the rights of and benefits for all veterans and their families. Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc., are dedicated to the aggressive advancement of realistic goals with integrity and in the spirit of unity that reflects our commitment of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc., all veterans, their families and communities. JOIN THE ASSOCIATES! W e meet on the third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Mount Clemens Public Library on Cass Avenue. Marge Schoenherr Cathy Cook AVVA Meeting opened at 7 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance Present: Marge Schoenherr, Patrick Bozzi, Clark and Pat Cherry, Chris and Tim Ignash, Cathy Cook. Memorial Day, May 27, we will serve dinner after the ceremonies at Freedom Hill. Menu will be discussed at the April meeting. Three holes have been sponsored the golf outing and raffle prizes are coming in. Discussed contacting associates who are members in good standing but do not attend meetings. Patrick Bozzi accepted the nomination for representative. Phyllis will accept the nomination for secretary. Meeting adjourned at 7:30 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Cathy Cook Associates Recognize Vietnam Veterans # Submitted by Brian Bobek A t the March general chapter meeting, the Associates provided cake and coffee to round out the evening. The cake was in recognition of the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans celebrations that take place later in the month. Judging by the amount left over, the cake was a big hit. We donated the remainder to the bartender at the American Legion, and I m sure it went over well with them too. Thank you to our hard-working Associates for all they do to support our chapter, and for thinking of the veterans on this special day. Chapter Challenge Coins & At-Large Chapter Membership # Submitted by Brian Bobek W e are down to about 17 chapter challenge coins. If you are still interested in one, please get down to the Vet Center quickly before they re gone. We have been focusing some attention on our membership situation, and we believe the renewal process is resulting in an error in our accounting. It appears that, if you send your dues to VVA National in Maryland, you re considered a member at large, not a member of Chapter 154. Therefore, you don t show up on our roster of members put out by National. If you check your membership card that you receive from National, it has to say MI0154 or you re not recognized as a chapter member. I am requesting any of you that fall into this category to come to the Vet Center and fill out a transfer of membership so that you show up on our rolls. You don t have to wait until renewal time to do this. In the future, Note from membership chairman Larry May: If you are a member at large and wish to vote in Chapter 154's April 10 election, please take care of the transfer to Chapter 154 as soon as possible. Contact me at renew through the Vet Center as opposed to sending dues to Maryland and we can get our report cleaned up. Also, please consider renewing your membership as a life member. The cost gets less as you get older, and eliminates the need for you to renew every year. VVA offers a time payment plan for life membership as well to make it easier on tight budgets. Converting to life member status also minimizes the ups and downs in our membership report caused when annual members forget to renew. We remain #4 in the country behind Tennessee and I d like to move ahead of them, but we can t do it unless we can account for all our members.

8 Chapter 154 Receives Generous Donation C hapter 154 recently received a sizeable donation from several organizations that promote doll shows. The attraction of their charity event was the Rose Percy doll. Please read the attached letter so that you better understand the significance of this doll, and what her importance has been to veterans dating back to the Civil War. This is yet another example of people from varied interests that not only want to do good things for vets, but choose Chapter 154 as their conduit to do so. These people investigated several organizations, and picked us when they found out all that we do, and how we do it. Hats off to everyone in our chapter who have worked so hard for so many years to put us in a position of prominence among veterans groups. Veterans Court Presentation # Submitted by Brian Bobek O n Thursday, March 21, I was asked to attend a meeting of veteran s court people to inform them about our Veteran s Support Center and what we stand prepared to do to help veterans in many different ways. I believe it was enlightening to participants to know that there are organizations out there to help them through difficult times. I have attached a little acknowledgment that appeared in their newsletter referencing a donation that our chapter made to them to assist them in continuing their good work. Source: Department of Veterans Affairs - Public Health - Asbestos E xposure to asbestos can be a serious health risk if asbestos-containing material is disturbed in such a way that the particles and fibers become airborne. Symptoms of asbestos-related diseases, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain, often do not appear until 20 to 50 years after the exposure. If you are concerned about health problems associated with asbestos exposure during your military service, talk to your health care provider or local VA Environmental Health Coordinator. Veterans who served in any of the following occupations may have been exposed to asbestos: mining, milling, shipyard work, insulation work, demolition of old buildings, carpentry and construction, manufacturing and installation of products such as flooring and roofing. Veterans who served in Iraq and other countries in that region could have been exposed to asbestos when older buildings were damaged and the contaminant released into the air. Breathing asbestos mainly causes problems in the lungs and the membrane that surrounds the lungs, including: Asbestosis Scarring of lung tissue that causes breathing problems, usually in workers exposed to asbestos in workplaces before the Federal government began regulating asbestos use (mid-1970s). Pleural plaques Scarring in the inner surface of the ribcage and area surrounding the lungs that can cause breathing problems, though usually not as serious as asbestosis. People living in areas with high environmental levels of asbestos, as well as workers, can develop pleural plaques. Cancer The two types of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos are lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin lining surrounding the lung (pleural membrane) or abdominal cavity (the peritoneum). Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer usually caused by asbestos exposure. Learn more about asbestos and its health effects from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Veterans may be eligible for VA disability compensation benefits and health care benefits for health problems associated with exposure to asbestos during military service. Veterans' dependents and survivors also may be eligible for benefits. Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter Boo Coo News APRIL Page 8
