The Veterans Transition Resource Center recently moved from North Las Vegas to its new location near Sunset Park in Las Vegas. The original intent was to provide 2 offices where veterans and their families could go for assistance with disability claims and other services. However, Eva Secchari will continue to operate solely as Life After Active Duty in North Las Vegas. Veterans Care foundation, the other founder of the Veterans Transition Resource Center will operate as Veterans Transition Resource Center.
According to Jim Lytner, president of Veterans Care Foundation, the VTRC will continue to provide many of the services previously offered or connect a veteran and their family to them. Business hours will be Monday thru Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM and Saturdays by appointment. The location, 2690 East Sunset Road is at the corner of McLeod in an old bank building.
The radio show, Veterans Talk/The Forgotten Promise will be live from the teller stations at the new location. Since the teller stations became the desks where their radio show is done, they want everyone to know that you can bank on our help. Veterans, their families, and others are invited to participate as a live audience.
On October 21st, they hosted an Oktoberfest. Radio show hosts Kevin Wall and Wayne Allen Root (aka WAR) were special guests along with Assemblyman Jim Marchant.
The focus of the show and Oktoberfest was to raise money to continue operation. Although everyone on the staff is a volunteer and no salaries are paid, there are still day to day operating expenses to continue serving veterans and their families and bring you the radio show.
The VTRC will continue to focus on educating veterans and their families regarding benefits, disability claims, informative classes on Agent Orange and other herbicides. They will also focus on combating veteran suicide rates through safe TALK (Suicide Alertness for Everyone) and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) classes.
The Veterans Transition Resource Center is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit public charity which means all donations are tax deductible. Your generous donations will go directly to providing services and programs for veterans and their families.
