Sgt James F. Carty, DSC VFW Post 1545

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/17/24 | 4/17/24

I just want veterans to understand that if they go through a law firm to file for service-connected disabilities, they will find out that they will be charged a sizable fee. 

An accredited VFW service officer will file the proper documentation at no charge. I bring this up once again because I met a veteran who went through a law firm and is upset that his settlement was not what he thought as the firm took a large portion as their fee.

Unfortunately, he signed an agreement that is binding. So. I really want veterans to receive the complete amount they are entitled.   

Any Veteran who has questions regarding how to proceed with filing for your rightful benefits, please contact me at and I will direct you to a service officer. 

As spring is in the air, it is a good time to remind everyone that if you should  have an American Flag that is worn out and torn, bring it to the front of the VFW building and we will ceremoniously take care of in on Flag Day June 14th

I have seen a few tattered flags flying lately and should you have one of them just drop it off. You are welcome to our Flag Day ceremony when we burn the flags as per the ritual, on June 14.

Please, if you are a veteran and qualify for the VFW, please consider joining our Post, or if you are a member and haven’t been to a meeting in a while, please join us and help to continue our mission of helping veterans and community service. If you haven’t heard this lately, Welcome Home. 

Also, as I write this, I realize that many of the town’s population goes on social media which had a myriad of posts regarding the wedding between myself and my bride, Lynn. 

We have been together for 27 years, when we decided to be married lawfully and spiritually. The ceremony was at Christ Episcopal Church in Greenville by Father Jerry Adinolfi at a mass attended by our five daughters and four of our five grandchildren along with the parishioners.

We spent a blissful 2 days at Otesaga Hotel and Resort. The respite was perfect, and the hotel is magnificent. 

Now we are home and getting back to our life together. We want to thank all who wished us well on social media and through texts and emails. We surprised everyone…..including our children. 

At these troubling times that our nation is dealing with, keep our troops still serving throughout the world and keep them in your prayers. God Bless America.
