Dear Military and Veteran Supporter,


You're invited to attend several events happening across Nevada in the months of March and April. They are all designed to either remember and honor or better serve our military and veteran communities.


The biggest event is the National Vietnam War Veterans Day remembrance, where ceremonies will be held across the country.


In Las Vegas, there will be a wreath-laying ceremony at the Las Vegas Veterans Memorial in front of the Grant Sawyer Building, located at 555 East Washington Avenue, beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 29, 2018. The general public is invited but we are hoping to get a "head count" to ensure adequate seating. Please pre-register to "save your seat" by going here: http://bit.ly/2EaXTFU . You are encouraged to park at Cashman Center across just across the street from the Grant Sawyer building. If you are a Vietnam veteran, thank you for your service!

Another Vietnam War Veterans Day ceremony will be held in Carson City on March 31, 2018 at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Mills Park beginning at 5:00 p.m.  Additionally, ceremonies are being planned in Elko and Winnemucca. We will be sure to pass along more details as soon as they become available.


Earlier in the month, the Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) will host a FREE Veteran Home Buying and Preparation Seminar. It will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Las Vegas VA Medical Center in the first floor Auditorium. The Medical Center is located at 6900 N. Pecos Road, North Las Vegas. The Seminar will run from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  Pre-register here: http://bit.ly/2EdoZfr    

  

The seminar is aimed at veterans or military members who want to learn about the programs available to buy a home, including, but not limited to, first time home buyers.

 

NDVS will host two Legislative Symposia.  The first will be held in Reno March 24th, with the location to be determined soon. Join us for coffee at 8:00 a.m.  The program kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and will run through 11:30 a.m. Pre-register here: http://bit.ly/2GQODFn

On March 31, the second symposium will be held in Las Vegas at the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System, 1st Floor Auditorium, located at 6900 North Pecos Road.  Join us for coffee at 8:00 a.m. The program kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and will run through 11:30 a.m. Pre-register here: http://bit.ly/2nB1SSn


The symposia helps identify and understand the issues and concerns of Nevada’s veterans, military members, their families and veteran advocates for the purpose of developing a list of prioritized legislative recommendations. It has been a very successful process. In 2017, 26 veteran bills were signed into law by Governor Brian Sandoval. Every state-wide veteran/military priority identified through this process back in 2016 was legislatively addressed by the Governor or Nevada’s lawmakers.  


Finally, NDVS will host a FREE Nevada Veterans Advocate (NVA) Training Workshop on April 7th and 8th at the Sunset Station Hotel and Casino, located at 1301 Sunset Road, in Henderson. The two-day event will run from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. each day. The workshop sets participants on the path to becoming a certified NVA, who can assist veterans and their families in connecting to benefits, resources and services earned through military service. Pre-registration is available here: http://bit.ly/2GUIMPi. Vendors who support or serve veterans can pre-register here:  http://bit.ly/2ElZ1qa.


For more information or questions about any of the above events, feel free to call me at 702-283-9827 or email me at taylorm@veterans.nv.gov .


We look forward to seeing you in the months ahead Len Yelinek

provide service to all veterans and their families."

North Las Vegas to Become a Purple Heart City

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the North Las Vegas City Council will officially proclaim North Las Vegas as a “Purple Heart City” during its evening Council meeting at City Hall, 2250 L. V. Blvd, No., North Las Vegas, NV.  The Council convenes at 6:00 PM.  The public is invited to attend this patriotic ceremony.  


In taking this action, the City of North Las Vegas pays special homage to America’s sons and daughters, and particularly those from North Las Vegas, who have been killed or wounded in combat against the enemies of the United States or as a result of acts of international terrorism.  


Representing all Purple Heart recipients in the area will be Chapter 711 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Commander Len Yelinek will present Mayor John Lee and the Council with a special plaque and other mementoes to commemorate the day.  The city will also be presented a Purple Heart flag to be flown on military holidays; especially on August 7th, National Purple Heart Day.  


The "Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc.," (MOPH) was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all combat wounded veterans and active duty men and women who have received the decoration. Chartered by the Congress, The MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat. For this sacrifice, they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal. With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America's military history. Most importantly, through veteran service, they provide comfort and assistance to all Veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless, and those requiring employment assistance.  Programs of the MOPH include VA Volunteer Service, JROTC Leadership Awards, Scholarships, Americanism, Purple Heart Trail and Cities, Welfare, and numerous community service programs, all with the objective of service to Veterans and their families.   Chapter 711 meets the first Saturday of each month at the   


 I-Hop Restaurant, 9651 Trailwood Dr., Las Vegas.
