The Centurion Newsletter — April 2013 Edition

Office of Veterans Services | Date Posted: Friday, April 12, 2013



My Fellow Veterans,
The General Assembly is again in full session. I encourage you to keep a close eye on all bills introduced or assigned to committees that may have an impact on veterans. I regret to report that Commissioner Robert E. Wasson (Delaware Veterans) passed away while in Florida. A memorial service was held at Delaware Veterans Post 1 in February. I presented a tribute from Governor Jack Markell and Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn for distinguished service and dedication as a member of the Commission. The Blue Wing of Delaware Veterans Home is officially open. The Admissions Committee has approved several applications from the waiting list. The Veterans Cemetery in Bear is back on schedule for the realignment and cleaning of the markers. Hopefully, it will be completed this year, as long as the weather cooperates. The 198th Signal Battalion has deployed to Fort Bliss for intensive training prior to movement to Afghanistan.
