Dear Sir Knights,
 I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for all the work we do for the Vets at the VA in Coatesville. It is done with hard work and of course the Dues that you pay so that we can provide financial support for the many projects at the VA.  Thank you

I have attached the Vet newsletter provided to me by SK Jim Smith.   Take a look at the newsletter and look for recognition to the Chester County  Assembly in action.
