The meeting on Jan. 29 for Veterans Helping Veterans in Don Diego’s Restaurant only had two speakers and both were quick and to the point.

The first was Veterans Service Office Tyra Saavedra who passed along the most recent update from the VA. According to Saavedra, there is an office being set up in Gallup at the Ford Canyon Senior Center that will be exclusively for the veteran’s use and manned by a VA representative. Exact timelines have not yet been established but will be posted and announced as soon as they become available.

The second speaker was Bernadine Martin, who announced her candidacy for District Attorney in the election to be held later this year. She was also at the meeting to gather needed signatures for her petition that would enable her to run.

The veterans present received both speakers gratefully.

The next meeting of Veterans Helping Veterans is for A-Team members on Feb. 5 at the Fire Station on N. Second and Maloney.
