AARP California is forming a Veterans Advisory Council to help us build a strategy for serving and working with veterans and organizations across the state. The Council will also review any veteran-related bills in the legislature and make recommendations to the state director on appropriate action. The ideal member will have experience in one or more of the following areas: general veterans’ issues, veterans with disabilities, self-employed veterans, veterans who are caregivers, young/student veterans, etc. This is a VOLUNTEER role. Please see the full description below. To apply or request additional information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At AARP, we salute and honor everyone who has served our great country. That’s why we’re proud to support veterans and their families. AARP Kentucky and KIPDA would like to show our appreciation for women veterans who have done so much to serve and protect, with a luncheon and resource fair.
At 60 years old, Clifford Boxley has been driving veterans from his hometown of Lamar, Colorado to medical appoints in Denver, as well as La Junta and Pueblo for the past seven years. That dedication has earned him the AARP 2014 Andrus Award, the highest honor a volunteer can receive from AARP.
Veterans and their families are sometimes targeted by unscrupulous financial and legal professionals who claim to offer free help with paperwork for pension claims.
