Proposed Federal House Legislation HB1181 prohibits, in any case arising out of the administration of laws and benefits by the Department of Veterans Affairs, any person who is mentally incapacitated, deemed mentally incompetent, or experiencing an extended loss of consciousness from being considered adjudicated as a mental defective for purposes of the right to receive or transport firearms without the order or finding of a judicial authority of competent jurisdiction that such person is a danger to himself or herself or others.
Last Action: Motion to reconsider laid on the table – Agreed to without objection on March 16, 2017. Contact your federal legislators to take it off the table and approve it. Otherwise, some vets can have their firearms confiscated.

Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1054 recently drew the winning tickets for their annual Elk Hunt Raffle. The first place winner was Leonard Blain, but he chose to take the second prize, $2,000. Therefore the second place winner Rick Drennen, won the elk hunt. Pictured are Phil Braeger (chapter Vice President), Leonard Blain and Jack Kempter (Chapter President).
Chapter 1054 has been chosen to receive the “Best VVA Chapter” award for the 300-400 member category. Dan Stenvold (National Board of Director) is going to try and present it to us unless the Region 6 Director does at our next chapter meeting. Attached is a photo of Dan holding the award. Be proud of your accomplishments.
The Region 6 Conference is on June 3rd and 4th in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The information on the Conference will be in the May edition of the Veteran magazine on page 18 under Region 6.
