07/28/2016 - 07/31/2016 Traveling Vietnam Wall - "The Wall That Heals" comes to East Brandywine PA

The Wall That Heals is coming to East Brandywine Hopewell United Methodist Church (UMC) and East Brandywine Township will play host this summer to The Wall That Heals, a 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Part of a national tour, the replica memorial wall and accompanying mobile education center will be on display throughout the day and night, from July 28th to July 31st at East Brandywine Township Community Park, 440 Dilworth Road. Since its debut in 1996, more than two million people have visited The Wall That Heals sites. It has made stops in nearly 400 U.S. communities in addition to a tour of Ireland and a visit to Canada. Hosting The Wall That Heals provides area residents with a multi-day educational experience on the history of the Vietnam era and The Wall. The exhibit includes a mobile education center comprised of: photos of service members whose names are found on The Wall; letters and memorabilia left at The Wall in D.C.; a map of Vietnam and a chronological overview of the conflict in Vietnam. The exhibits tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict, and are designed to put American experiences in Vietnam in a historical and cultural context. The Wall That Heals will be open 24 hours a day from July 28th to July 31st. There is no charge for admission. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) coordinates local stops of The Wall That Heals and the accompanying mobile Education Center. The current schedule and more information can be found at www.thewallthatheals.org. The 2016 national The Wall That Heals tour is generously sponsored by: USAA, Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Trust, FedEx, and Geico. About The Half-Scale Replica The replica Wall is approximately 250 feet in length, and like the original Memorial is erected in a chevron-shape. The replica is constructed of powder-coated aluminum, supported by an aluminum frame, and is made up of 24 individual panels, each containing six columns of names. The names on The Wall That Heals replicate the names on The Wall in Washington, D.C. As on The Wall, the names are listed alphabetically by day of casualty. Beginning at the center/apex, the names start on the East Wall (right-hand side} working their way out to the end of that wing, picking up again at the far end of the West Wall (left-hand side) and working their way back in to the center/apex. Thus, the beginning and ending of the conflict are joined at the center, signifying an epoch in American history. The Wall That Heals is transported from community to community by a 53-foot, fifth-wheel trailer with cases built into its sides, allowing it to serve as a mobile Education Center that tells the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the divisive era in American history.

06/20/2016 REPORTED - Killed in Action

The post Guest Speaker will be Lisa Beichl who has written articles in a variety of journals on the issues in global health management. She holds a B.A. degree from Loyola College in Maryland and an M.B.A. degree in finance from St. Joseph’s University. Her topic will be “REPORTED KILLED IN ACTION: AN UNEXPECTED SOLDIER, A REMARKABLE LIFE” which focuses on two diaries that her father, George Beichl, PhD kept. The first he wrote as an American student in Munich during the summer of 1939. The second diary he wrote as an American POW in Stalag XIIA in Germany in 1945. In the 1939 diary he wrote about the opera, the movies, the cost of beer, etc. When Hitler declared war on Poland and the University was formally closed, George wrote about it in his diary. He also wrote about the challenges he faced trying to return to Philadelphia with his mother when all the German boats were being used for the war effort. In 1944, George had a Master’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania, and was teaching Chemistry at St. Joseph’s University. Following the Battle at Normandy, the US Army drafted new recruits and one was George Beichl. In spite of his degree in Chemistry and the need for chemists at the time, he was sent into the Infantry and fought to support the Ardennes Offensive. His last battle was deadly and he was reported KILLED IN ACTION. Miraculously, he survived and so did this second diary. In it he reflected on his prisoner experience, the hunger, delousing, singing, Allied strafing and ultimately freedom. When George returned to Philadelphia after being a POW, he received clearance to work as a chemist on the Manhattan Project, first in Oakridge and then later in Los Alamos. These diaries were kept a secret from his family until 2010. The stories within these diaries paint a fascinating picture of a time in history we must never forget. George’s service to his country led to him receiving a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. His subsequent work to repair the tattered relationship between the US and Germany led to the German government awarding him the highest honor given to a non-German, the Commander’s Cross (Grosses Verdienstkreuz).

E-mail info@fundraiserwrestling for tickets! “TRACERS” wants to end homelessness for veterans in Bergen County by helping homeless veterans and veterans in danger of becoming homeless, and giving a hand to homeless vets, not a hand-out. Working together, we can do it. Assisting homeless veterans is a top priority for the Bergen County Division of Veterans Services and its Advisory Board. In 1993, the division addressed this priority by launching Tracers, an all-volunteer group consisting of resident veterans. The primary mission of our volunteers is to locate homeless veterans and link them to community-based and VA sponsored programs and benefits. Tracers hopes to find veterans shelters, jobs which provide adequate income, as well as other needed services in Bergen County. Tracers works with local veteran groups and other nonprofit organizations, public officials, business leaders, homeless and formerly homeless veterans. The program’s name, “TRACERS,” was derived from the glow-in-the-dark bulletsrecognized by U.S. Military personnel. The veterans who volunteer for “TRACERS” are guiding lights who offer nontraditional outreach efforts to homeless veterans The goal of “TRACERS” is to help every homeless veteran in Bergen County reach self-sufficiency. In addition, “TRACERS” has established a transitional home in the City of Garfield with support services for eight homeless veterans. The home opened in 2003.

The Moving Wall®, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, will make a rare Berks County stop when it visits the Jim Dietrich Park in Muhlenberg Township. The Moving Wall will arrive on June 8 and will be open for visitation and remembrances June 9 -13, 2016.  The wall will be on display at Jim Dietrich Park; which is located at 4900 Stoudt’s Ferry Bridge Rd. in Muhlenberg Township.  The tribute is being organized by Muhlenberg Township. There will be several ceremonies connected to this event.  They are as follows:  Opening Ceremony on Thursday, June 9th at 7PM, Candle Light Vigil on Friday, June 10th at 8PM, Wreath Ceremony on Saturday, June 11 at 10AM and the Closing Ceremony on Sunday at 7PM. The Moving Wall® stands six feet tall at the center, covers almost 250 feet from end to end, and has 58,272 names inscribed on its surface. This traveling memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made for the purpose of helping heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to honor loved ones in their hometown who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington. The sacrifices that our relatives, our friends and our fellow citizens made in Vietnam should never be forgotten. This event is specifically meant to remember, honor, and commemorate those who served in the Vietnam War, and to educate the generations of people who are unaware of this sacrifices made by this great country. Individuals and businesses interested in making a donation or sponsorship to help cover the costs involved in bringing The Moving Wall® to Berks County should contact Robin Gardner by phone at 610-929-4727. Muhlenberg Township is just northwest of Reading PA in Berks County.  Reading, PA is approximately 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia, PA and easily accessible via the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate I-78. The Moving Wall® is part of the Vietnam Combat Veterans, LTD located in White Pine MI. When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.  John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.

06/05/2016 Elmer VFW 1259 sponsored Eye Cancer Fundraiser

SPONSORSHIPS NEEDED Dear Friend   I am writing this letter on behalf of 33 yr. old Mike Wunsch who has Eye Cancer.  I am    holding a fundraiser “Help Mike Fight for Life & Sight” on Sunday, June 5th. from 1pm ~ 5pm (rain or shine) at the  Salem County Fairgrounds Rt.40 Woodstown, NJ.  This will prove to be a fun and lively family event.  (See reverse side for show information)  We are asking for      financial help through our sponsorships.   Sponsors will be included on our Fundraiser Show Playbill and announced throughout our show.   Mike needs your help by sponsoring this event!  All proceeds will go to WillsEye Hospital & Medical Associates for continuing treatments.  Ocular melanoma (“OM” for short) is a cancer of the eye diagnosed in approximately 2,000-2,500 adults annually in the United States.  It occurs most often in lightly pigmented individuals with a       median age of 55 years. However, it can occur in all races and at any age.  Mike, however is 33 with brown eyes.    Ocular melanoma is a malignant tumor that can grow and spread to other parts of the body.    OM is much rarer than skin melanoma and behaves quite differently. There are other types of eye cancers, but OM is the most common in adults and the most dangerous.  It's a potentially lethal disease, especially when it spreads to the liver.   Mike was treated at Wills Eye Hospital back in May 2015 with plaque radiotherapy.  Plaque             radiotherapy is currently the most common form of treatment for ocular melanoma.  This technique   involves a small radiation plaque that is the size of a nickel that is surgically applied to the eye directly over the tumor.  The plaque contains radioactive seeds carefully placed by specially trained radiation oncologists and physicists.  It is left in place for 4 to 7 days to provide the radiation to the entire tumor. The goal of this treatment is to destroy the tumor and prevent it from spreading to other parts of the body.  Mike will have to undergo treatment to reduce deterioration of his eye due to the radiation.  He receives needles containing and medicine directly in the eye every four months for two years to help prevent the deterioration.  As of February 2016 A rip was discovered and it is leaking fluid into the eye causing more vision loss that needs to be fixed with laser surgery that insurance does not want to     cover.     We are asking that you please donate to help Mike and his family cover the cost of the procedure to help save his eye and his vision.   You can do so as a Sponsor.    Please know that no donation is too small. Every contribution helps and is greatly appreciated.  All donations are tax deductible. Platinum Sponsor…. $1000.oo—————will receive 10 tickets to the show Gold Sponsor……….$500.oo—————  will receive 5 tickets to the show Silver Sponsor……...$250.oo—————--will receive 2 tickets to the show Bronze Sponsor…….$100.oo—————  will receive 1 ticket to the...

The Michael J. Crescenz Memorial Foundation will be dedicating a larger-than-lifestatue of the only Philadelphia residet to receive the MOH for action during the Vietnam War.

(Escort of Statue coming in on Friday, see other posting) The foundation is composed of veterans and has raised the needed funds since Dec 2014. The statue was designed and sculpted by local sculptor Chad Fisher. The statue was created, to honor Michael J. Crescenz who received the medal posthumously for eliminating three machine gun bunkers which had halted the advance of his company on Nov. The 19-year-old Army corporal was a 1966 graduate of Cardinal Dougherty High School. "We chose the site of the Memorial because we wanted to place Michael's statue in a place of honor with his 647 brothers," noted Tom Roberts, the chairman of the foundation. "The outpouring of support we've received in such a short time for this project has been extremely gratifying." The ceremony will feature remarks by Thomas Roberts, Charles Crescenz,( Michael's older brother) who served as a Marine in Vietnam; Ed Prendergast CD Class of 66 and William "Doc"Stafford, who was the medic that attempted to treat Michael for his ultimately fatal wounds. The 8.5-foot bronze statue which depicts Michael in combat gear charging the enemy with an M-60 machine gun, will be installed on a pedestal on the south side of the Memorial. The VA Medical Center was renamed for Michael last May For more information, including flyer if applicable, click on Event Title

Four U.S. Army Chaplains gave up their life jackets and prayed together when their transport ship, the U.S.A.T Dorchester was torpedoed eighty miles south of Greenland on February 3, 1943. The Chaplains came from different faiths and backgrounds. John P. Washington was a Catholic Priest from Kearny, New Jersey, Rabbi Alexander D. Goode was a native of York, Pennsylvania. Clark V. Poling was a a minister in the Reformed Church in America at the First Reformed Church in Schenectady, New York. George L. Fox, a decorated World War One veteran, was a Methodist minister in Gilman, Vermont. The Four Chaplains Memorial Foundation’s vision is to impart the principles of selfless service to humanity without regard to race, creed, ethnicity, or religious beliefs. The Four Chaplains Memorial Foundation exists to further the cause of “unity without uniformity” by encouraging goodwill and cooperation among all people. The organization achieves its mission by advocating for and honoring people whose deeds symbolize the legacy of the Four Chaplains aboard the U.S.A.T. Dorchester in 1943.

03/16/2016 Counterinsurgency Discussion with Dr. John A. Nagl (LTC, United States Army, Ret.)

Please Join Saint Joseph’s University Student Veterans of America (SVA) Chapter for the SVA Speaker Series Kickoff Event with Dr. John A. Nagl (LTC, United States Army, Ret.) What: Dr. John A. Nagl will discuss his experience as a military leader in the times of counterinsurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Date: March 16, 2016 Time: 7:00PM – 9:00PM Location: Cardinal John P. Foley Campus Center, 5600 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 Parking: McShain Hall and Duperreault parking lots. Event signs will be posted. Please e-mail sjuveterans@sju.edu if you have any questions about parking. Campus Map: https://sites.sju.edu/campusmap/ The event is free and open to the public.  Books will be available for purchase to be signed by the author. About the Author: Dr. John A. Nagl is a retired lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Army. A graduate of West Point and a Rhodes Scholar, he received his Ph.D. from St. Antony’s College, Oxford, where he wrote his thesis on counterinsurgency in Malaya and Vietnam. Nagl served as the military assistant to deputy secretaries of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and Gordon England, where he coauthored the U.S. Army and Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual with generals David Petraeus and James M. Mattis. He is the former president of the Center for a New American Security and the ninth headmaster of the Haverford School in Pennsylvania. About the book: “Knife Fights: A Memoir of Modern War in Theory and Practice” “From one of the most important Army officers of his generation, a memoir of the military’s revolution in counterinsurgency warfare.” “Delivering a profound education in modern warfare, John Nagl’s Knife Fights is essential reading for anyone who cares about the fate of America’s soldiers and the purposes for which their lives are put at risk. As an army tank commander in the first Gulf War, Nagl was an early convert to the view that America’s greatest future threats would come from asymmetric warfare—guerrillas, terrorists, and insurgents. His Oxford thesis on the lessons of Vietnam—eventually published as a book called Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife—became the bible of the counterinsurgency movement. But it would take 9/11 and the botched aftermath of the Iraq invasion to give his ideas contemporary relevance. After a year’s hard fighting in Iraq’s Anbar Province, where Nagl served as operations officer of a tank battalion in the 1st Infantry Division, he was asked by General David Petraeus to coauthor the new Army and Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual—rewriting core doctrine that would change the course of two wars and the thinking of an army. Knife Fights is the definitive account of counterinsurgency and its consequences by the man who was the doctrine’s leading architect.” Event Link: http://www.sju.edu/news-events/events?trumbaEmbed=view%3Devent%26eventid%3D118294309 For more information, including flyer if applicable, click on Event Title

12/04/2015 Philly Pops - Free for 2000 military, fire and police depts

The Philly POPS will kick off its holiday concert season with a free show for 2,000 members of the military, fire and police departments, and their families, on December 4, 2015. The second annual Miller Lite Presents I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS: A Salute to the Military and First Responders program features Mayor Michael Nutter, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, Fire Commissioner Derrick Sawyer and Rear Adm. Thomas Lynch. The event is a highlight of the POPS’ Salute Series: concerts scheduled around American holidays in celebration of the American tradition of service, such as POPS on Independence on July 3. The Salute Series reached 31,000 people in 2015 – the largest audience for any POPS program. “Three years ago, when the POPS played the song I’ll be Home for Christmas, I had a vision: in the movie White Christmas, when Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye open the door and all the soldiers salute their former general,” said Frank Giordano, President and CEO of the Philly POPS. “It hit me right then and there: next year, I’m giving away all the tickets to the opening night concert.” Celebrated Conductor David Charles Abell creates a ‘winter wonderland’ in the Kimmel Center this December by leading the 65-piece POPS orchestra, guest vocalist (and Broadway veteran) Lisa Vroman, the Philadelphia Boys Choir, the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas Gospel Choir, the POPS Festival Chorus, organist Peter Richard Conte and a USO singing troupe through a new program featuring holiday favorites like Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Hallelujah. “It’s a holiday experience you simply can’t have anywhere else,” says Abell. “I always make sure that the program has something for everyone: grand symphonic arrangements of Christmas carols, popular holiday songs, Christmas music done in swing style, Chanukah favorites, rousing Gospel numbers, and the ever-popular audience singalong.” Setting the scene inside the Kimmel Center lobby and outside on Broad Street will be military and police vehicles, roving Christmas carolers, Santa and Mrs. Claus and a bagpipe and drum corps. The event is made possible by generous donors and sponsors, including presenting sponsor Miller Lite, Major Sponsor NewDay USA and many more. HOW TO GET TICKETS Members of the military register for NO COST tickets through the USO. Police and Fire department personnel register through their respective public affairs offices. All concert goers go the 'Will Call' Window in the lobby of the Kimmel Center prior to the concert and request their tickets. If you are a member of the service community and would like to sign up for tickets to this event, please email Christian Poarch cpoarch@phillypops.org. The general public can purchase tickets to the nine subsequent Christmas Spectacular concerts following this event that run December 5-22.

11/16/2015 Battle of the Seelow Heights

The Battle of the Seelow Heights (German: Schlacht um die Seelower Höhen) was part of the Seelow-Berlin Offensive Operation, one of the last assaults on large entrenched defensive positions of the Second World War. It was fought over three days, from 16–19 April 1945. Close to one million Soviet soldiers of the 1st Belorussian Front (including 78,556 soldiers of the Polish 1st Army), commanded by Marshal Georgi Zhukov, attacked the position known as the "Gates of Berlin". They were opposed by about 110,000 soldiers of the German 9th Army, commanded by General Theodor Busse, as part of the Army Group Vistula. This battle is often incorporated into the Battle of the Oder-Neisse. The Seelow Heights were where the most bitter fighting in the overall battle took place, but it was only one of several crossing points along the Oder and Neisse rivers where the Soviets attacked. The Battle of the Oder-Neisse was itself only the opening phase of the Battle of Berlin. Our guest speaker will be Colonel Paul Woerner, US Army (Retired) and member of our Post #405. Date: Monday, November 16, 2915 Time: 6:00 PM Dress Code: Men - Coat and Tie, No Jeans or sneakers please. For more information, including flyer if applicable, click on Event Title

11/13/2015 Veterans Day Shabbat Service honoring General Robert Magnus

General Robert Magnus, USMC was born on April 28, 1947 in Brooklyn, New York, the youngest child of a bookkeeper and a seamstress. His family moved from Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood, to the working class, community of Levittown, Long Island, “a mile and a half from a potato farm”. He was sent to a Conservative Hebrew school three days a week and celebrated his bar mitzvah at the Hicksville Jewish Center on Long Island. He majored in modern European and Russian history at the University of Virginia, graduating in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps. He earned a Master's degree in Business Administration from Strayer College in 1993. His formal military education includes Naval Aviator Training, U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College, and the National War College. He completed Basic School at Quantico, Virginia in 1969 and then reported to the Naval Air Training Command, where he was designated a Naval Aviator. In October 1974, Magnus left the Marine Corps for 15 months to work on Wall Street. According to Magnus, "I realized three things: I really liked flying, I really liked leading people – especially Marines, and that Wall Street wasn’t for me." When he returned to the Marines, Magnus became a weapons and tactics instructor for CH-46 helicopter aviators. Magnus’ operational assignments include: Intelligence Officer, HMM-264; Operations Officer, H&MS-15 SAR Detachment, Task Force Delta, Nam Phong, Thailand; Training Officer, SOES, MCAS Quantico; Aviation Safety Officer, Marine Aircraft Group 26 and HMM-263; Weapons and Tactics Instructor, Marine Aircraft Group 26 and HMM-261; Operations Officer, Marine Aircraft Group 29; Commanding Officer, HMM-365; Commander, Marine Corps Air Bases Western Area; Commanding General, MCAS Miramar; and Deputy Commander, Marine Forces Pacific (1999 – July 2000). Magnus’ staff assignments include Aviation Assault Medium Lift Requirements Officer; Chief, Logistics Readiness Center, Joint Staff; Executive Assistant to the Director of the Joint Staff; Head, Aviation Plans and Programs Branch; Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for Aviation; Assistant Deputy Commandant for Plans, Policies, and Operations (July 2000 – August 2001); and Deputy Commandant for Programs and Resources (August 2001 – September 2005). He was advanced to the rank of General on November 1, 2005 and began his assignment as the 30th Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps on November 8, 2005. On July 2, 2008, he was succeeded as Assistant Commandant by General James F. Amos. Magnus retired from active service in a ceremony on July 17, 2008 after 38 years of total service. Magnus received the Navy Distinguished Service Medal for his years of superior service to the U.S. military. He officially retired on September 1, 2008; at the time of his retirement, he was the last active officer of the Corps who had served in the Vietnam War and the highest ranking Jewish Officer in the history of the Marine Corps.

11/13/2015 WWII Veteran Funeral - Private 1st Class Vincent Pagliaro

WWII Veteran, Private 1st Class Vincent R. Pagliaro, marched into eternity on November 9, 2015. He was 95, just short of his goal to "live to be 100." Pagliaro, a graduate of South Philadelphia High School, was drafted into the Army Air Corp in 1941. Prior to reporting for boot camp, he married his wife, the former Dolores Marie (Dee) McPeak. An Airplane electrical mechanic from 1941-1946, Pagliaro served his country honorably in the China-Burma-India (CBI) theatre of war. The warriors assigned to the CBI theatre had a collective mission to "stop against an aggressive enemy from enslaving the people and plundering the resources of East Asian countries, specifically China Burma and India." Every pilot who flew required four technical specialists to ensure the safety and reliability of their aircraft. Like Pagliaro, they performed their duties in spartan structures amidst unforgiving terrain and with the looming threat of enemy bombing raids. Private first class Pagliaro was presented a patch from the Flying Tigers, officially called the American Volunteer Group, who were known for their planes with iconic shark faces on them. His skills, like those of the other airplane mechanic specialists, played an important role in the collective war effort. Pagliaro was officially discharged from military service at Fort Indiantown Gap, PA after enduring several months at sea "on a very slow ship" coming back to the States. Upon his return to the civilian sector, Vincent capitalized on his skills as a typesetter and worked for the Philadelphia Inquirer for over 35 years, advancing with the emerging technologies from handset typesetting to machine typesetting. With a sharp intuitive mind, Pagliaro was remembered for building his own television in the late 1940's when the post-war boom saw Americans transitioning from their dependence on the radio to the new media. Marie and Vincent Pagliaro raised their three children, Marie, Donna and Vincent, in Pennsauken, NJ and had five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. A patriotic American, Pagliaro was a member of the American Legion and was a past Commander of VFW Post 1270 in Pennsauken. Three years ago, he had the pleasure of joining other WWII and Korean veterans on an "Honor Flight" that left from Williamstown High School and brought the honored guests to visit their monument in D.C. Relatives and friends are invited to attend his memorial visitation on Friday, November 13, 2015 from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. at Inglesby & Sons Funeral Home, located at 2426 Cove Road, Pennsauken, NJ. A Memorial Mass will follow at 10 a.m. at St. Peters Roman Catholic Church in Merchantville. Inurnment will take place at New St. Mary's Cemetery in Bellmawr with military honors. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Wounded Warrior Project, www.woundedwarriorproject.org/Donate, P.O. Box 75817, Topeka, Kansas 66675.

This Expo and Job Fair will give you access to information about benefits and job opportunities. With employers and job seekers in the right place at the right time, mutually benefiting relationships can be formed and all can benefit from the rich sources of talent available to aid their organizations. For organizations or people interested in attending, please contact: madeleinemorlino@outlook.com of 856-628-7421 Jobs, benefits and more for veterans coming to Moorestown Moorestown students (from left) Craig Ambrose, Madeleine Morlino, Michael Altschuler, Sameer Parihar, Devin Lorusso, Sierra Van Gilst, Heather Warren, Kelly Li, Jessica Fan gear up to host a Veterans Benefits and Jobs Expo in town next month. MOORESTOWN — Calling all veterans in need of a job and a little freshening up. Employers, veterans’ organizations and a host of others have signed up to take part in a free Veterans Benefits and Job Expo on Nov. 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Community House on Main Street. All veterans are welcome to attend. The brainchild of Moorestown High School senior Madeleine Morlino, the expo, which is being held two days before Veterans Day, will offer plenty of opportunities to veterans and even prepare them to land a job. “The main purpose of the event is to provide veterans jobs, especially now that the unemployment is quite high,” Madeleine said. “We have 10 companies so far that are coming with jobs, and they’re big companies like Bank of America, PNC, Workforce Opportunity Service, Defense Contractor Management Agency, AnnieMac Mortgage, and a bunch of companies that have multiple jobs.” With the help of fellow high school students from Moorestown, Madeleine, whose father served in the Air Force for 23 years, organized the event to connect veterans with not only a place of employment but also with some fresh digs. “We got 200 suits donated by Men’s Warehouse to the veterans,” she said. “I was shocked. It’s amazing.” And to ensure the clothes fit right, Suiting Warriors will be there to make sure everyone finds the right-size suit. To top it off, free haircuts will be available to those in attendance, thanks to a family member from Hair Quarters Unisex Salon in Mantua. “My cousin’s wife, Katelynn Morlino, is shutting down her store that day and coming up to give dry haircuts for free to the veterans,” Madeleine said, along with coupons to get another cut later at Great Clips. While the expo seems to be on the mark these days, it definitely didn’t start out that way. After enlisting the help of several Moorestown High seniors and a family friend over the summer, the students soon learned that putting on an event of this caliber isn’t easy. “We spent at least two days — all...
