To Ridel, helping a fellow veteran feel that they are valued and appreciated for their service is worth his time and efforts.

As a young man from Chicago, Ambbeei Hall said he didn’t know what he was exactly getting himself into when he enlisted in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

VFW Post 6435 and their Ladies Auxiliary donate $20,000 to Delta Veterans Group for Stand Down on the Delta 2015

August 6, 2015

For the past two years, Delta Veterans Group has been providing veterans with VA claims assistance,

health and benefits fairs, and collaboration with prominent real estate and banking leaders to assist

veterans in purchasing homes in the Bay Area.  Along with these resources, DVG has made its mission to

bring Contra Costa County’s first ever homeless and at-risk veteran  “Stand Down on the Delta” to our

community. To date, DVG has had a substantial amount of support from the community for our veterans

and Stand Down on the Delta 2015.

With only five weeks remaining until this event, Delta Veterans Group has received a donation from the

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6435 in support of the Stand Down on the Delta in the amount of $10,000.

With this generous donation from the VFW, we have now received $20,000 from the VFW and Ladies

Auxiliary Post 6435, located in Antioch CA.

Delta Veterans Group thanks the VFW Post 6435 for their generous donations and outpouring of support

for our veterans in need. Without the VFW’s support, Delta Veterans Group wouldn’t be able to provide

our veterans with the essential resources they need at Stand Down on the Delta, such as food, clothing, and

medical care.

We are still accepting volunteers for the Stand Down on the Delta 2015. We encourage anyone and

everyone who wants to show their support for our Nation’s veterans to sign up on our website to volunteer -

www.deltaveteransgroup.org.

Thank you for your support!
