New VFW Office Thanks To Generous Expat Donation

Groups & Organizations #Panama - By DON WINNER for - Received today via email: "Hi Don ... VFW Post 3835 has a new Service Office because of the more than generous donation of $10,000 from Frank Hilson of Florida. Mr. Hilson is very fond of the work that the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) do for their fellow veterans and family members by living up to the VFW motto "to honor the dead by helping the living" and knew VFW Post 3835 is worthy of this donation for the work they do for the community and veterans. VFW Post 3835 Service Office will be in Santa Fe Consultorio, 2nd floor, room 15. The hours of operation will be Monday-Friday from 10:00-2:00 and the phone numbers are 391-0640 or 391-2654. The mission of the VFW Service Office is to assist veterans and their dependents, including active duty military personnel, in acquiring benefits and services to which they may be entitled. Veteran Service Officers advocate for veterans rights. Veterans need not be VFW members to take advantage of this assistance, which is provided free of charge.

VFW Post 3835 and its Ladies Auxiliary members want to publicly thank Mr. Frank Hilson from the bottom of our hearts for this donation that has been used to continue the work we do for our veterans and their families. Sincerely, Anita Littesy, Ladies Auxiliary Secretary

Editor's Comment: I met Mr. Hilson about two years ago at a luncheon at the Pangea restaurant. He was an Airman who served in the Vietnam War, and I would also like to add my special thanks and recognition for his more than generous donation to help the VFW Office here in Panama City. When I had my heart surgery back in 2008 he was the first to welcome me to the "zipper club." We've been in sporadic contact via email, and he's an avid Panama Guide reader. Thanks again, Frank. Good on 'ya. (Photo: Courtesy of R. Philbrick)
