Art Sloane The new director of the Arizona


Department of Veterans Services is Ted Vogt from Tucson. He is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force who served as an intelligence offi cer and commanded a unit that was responsible for providing counter-terrorism and threat information.

Two restaurants are now giving


discounts to veterans. Which Wich will give a 10 percent discount. It has a sandwich shop in Chandler and will open another in Gilbert. Uncle Bear’s Grill and Bar in Mesa, Chandler, Queen Creek and Surprise offers a 15 percent discount. Remember, if you are a veteran always ask for a discount since most restaurants and businesses will give you one with a veteran ID. Veterans in Chandler, be aware that


there will be a Military Members and Veterans Benefi ts Expo from 9:00 a.m.-


noon on October 19, at the Chandler Center For the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave, next to Chandler High School and at the corners of Arizona Avenue and Chandler Boulevard. Explore your benefi ts, learn about veterans organizations, meet


the mayor, discover


employment and educational opportunities and have a free wellness check by the Chandler Fire Department. This event is sponsored by the City of Chandler and the Arizona Department of Veterans Services and is open to all veterans statewide. For information call 480-558-2052. Almost two years ago the Arizona


Legislature passed a program that veterans designation could be put on a driver’s license so those without an ID card would be able to prove they are a veteran and obtain a discount. After much time and when funds were available you may have veteran on your license starting September 16. This application form 40-5122 or commercial driver’s license form 40-5124 may be obtained and will be available on that date. You must bring a copy of verifi cation that you are a veteran. There are many ways to do this but of course the best is a copy of your DD214 or for WWII veterans a copy of your discharge. You may use your organization such as VFW or American Legion membership.

Paul Frederic Kacer What to pack What to leave What to sell What to just Throw away Confronting A reality that Says stay away How to split a Record album Into two halves Leaving just the Good songs Getting rid of The bad ones Will my ITunes Fit in a cloud or Should I leave


Them here on The ground and Just walk away Needing months To do all of this When there’s only A few weeks left When you move A lesson learned While up in the air Life is a test and To stop moving Is to fail and Not be able To Move at all
