James Wilson (center) spoke at Thursday's meeting of the Vietnam Era Veterans. Wilson is the VetCorps Prevention Coordinator (VISTA) with the Coffee Co. Anti-Drug Coalition. He spoke about assistance programs that are available for returning war veterans. These programs were not familiar to the Vietnam veterans he spoke to because they were not available to them after serving during the Vietnam period. Wilson was presented with the club's Vietnam Era mug from veteran Howard Pinkston (left) as veteran Tom Taylor looks on. For information about the Vietnam Era Veterans, open to all veterans, call Taylor at 684-2557.
