"Vets Helping Vets"
by Sheryl Shaffer
It is hard to believe that it has been 15 years since the "Veterans Helping Veterans" TV series began at the Media Center. Had no idea how this series was going to change my life. Never expected it to last this long but someone out there is watching.
Since we have been on blip.tv and pegmedia.org many people are watching this series about veterans entitlements all over the U.S.. The mission of the "VHV TV" series is to educate and inform veterans of their entitlements. Also to encourage veterans to volunteer and make a positive difference in their communities.
We have recently received our second grant from the AMVETS California Service Foundation. This grant allows me to get out of the studio and to conduct on-the-street type interviews. It is my intention to take this program concept and turn it into a national program for AMVETS. I travel throughout California doing interviews. We go on location to the Vets Home in Barstow on Feb. 28. Will be in Media Ctr studio next month.
Thank you for encouraging me to do this program Elliot.
