Cape Cod Veterans News


I wish to thank all those that worked so hard this weekend at various event. At the Thursday meeting (25 attended) and we transferred $10,000 into the TD Bank Heroes Account so we have $13,000+ for our next visit to Walter Reed or emergency needs of Veterans on Cape Cod. There is plenty of funds in the other account for donations and operations. A $500 check was delivered to The Fisher House in Boston by Jeff & Vincent, a $500 check was given to Navy Veteran at our Veterans Day Concert to assist her in flying her daughter to Texas for special medical treatment. $300 was sent to Our Active Duty Liaison, LTC Tony Manfredi for packages to Cape units deployed in Afghanistan, we have a budget for this, if more is needed. VFW post 10274 Dennis, Brewster VFW and Maratha's Vineyard VFW, have donated to this also. I spoke at the Harwich Middle School on Thursday Nov. 6th and the 7th Grade students were great. I was guest speaker  at the Orleans Senior Citizens Center Luncheon Nov. 8th, the people wanted to know more about our organization, and the work we do. Sat. Nov. 9th, members alone with fellow Patriots were at Bourne National Cemetery to place 58,000 flags on the graves of our Heroes. Thanks to Paul Monti and the Jared Monti Foundation ( Paul's son won the Medal of Honor and the song he inspired by driving Jared's truck won Best Country Song 2013 this week, "I Drive Your Truck").  Last Nov. 11th CCVI, VFW Post 10274, Korean War Veterans Post 299 & East Boston Post 206 Italian American-Veterans dedicated Jared's MOH Memorial at American Legion's Post 206, Raynham. The Concert at the Irish Village was great, largest turnout ever and member Dave Collett's Patriotic Table was auctioned off for $550, great job Dave! KMGGT donated $1,500 and Jack's 28 Club $1,000 to CCVI from their golf fundraisers, thanks members Kenny and Richie Sliva. Veterans Day members were at Mayflower and Eagle Pond Nursing Homes. At Mayflower at 10AM, CCVI joined Beacon Hospice to salute and thank Veterans for their service, with member Chris Mack performing patriotic songs. At 11:30AM CCVI & VFW Post 10274 visited Veterans in their rooms, as we finished Marine Corps League Hyannis with Don Brenner and his great looking Marines in uniform continued the visit. Other members were at local events and Memorial Services on Cape Cod. Pictures can be seen on the web site.
