Dear Sisters and Brothers,
I’m Odette Force, the Veteran and Family Support for the Department of Oregon. I want to thank President Debbie Wright for the opportunity to work with all of you. Working with Veterans is very important to me. I have for several years been the Chairman for District 13 for Veteran and Family Support. I hope this gives me a little insight into the important job ahead of me.
With the Pandemic restrictions making it hard to service our veterans in a normal manner. This will be a challenging year. Please if you have ideas, share them. It will take all of us calling working together as a team to make this an outstanding year.
One of my goals this year, is to give extra attention to the caregivers. They have extra burdens that we might be able to help with. Social distancing makes it impossible to visit or help with projects. We can send them thinking of you card. Making meals that can be left or volunteering to do the shopping for the week. There are many ways we can give them a little helping hand.
I’m looking forward to working with all of you through these very different and trying times. If you have any questions, please call. Home phone: 541-746-9849. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Veteran and Family Support Chairman
