This is the third installment of “Your Military Minute”, where we talk about Veterans Services right in our backyard. Steven A. Croteau from the Veterans Bonus Division shares how to determine if you are eligible for a Massachusetts Veterans’ Bonus.
A Veterans Appreciation Dinner was held last night, November 26, at the North Andover Senior Center. The meal was generously provided by the Accidental Food Bank and served by Local Scout Troops. One of the scouts read a Veterans Appreciation Essay in which she wrote. Senator Bruce Tarr was also present to speak and show his support. Steven Croteau from the Veterans Bonus Division in Boston and Joseph LeBlanc, District Director of Veterans Services for North Andover and Boxford, conducted the outreach. Thank you to everyone who had part in making this event a success!
It’s always special to recognize a Veteran’s Service. It’s especially an honor to recognize the service of our World War II Veterans. Corporal Stillwell, Enlisted in the U.S. Army on the 21st of June, 1943, served in the Rhineland, and Central European Campaigns. Corporal Stillwell was captured by German forces, in Germany in 1944. He spent the balance of the war as a Prisoner of War, returning home the 17th, of June 1945. This Senate Citation was presented by Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr today.
