A Special ‘Talk Story’ in May

by Keith Yamaguchi
June 2022, Volume 73, Issue 6

What a special Talk Story.  I’ve enjoyed each of the Talk Story events up to this point.  Meeting new people and sharing one’s common interests and life experiences has been a great way toward building a fellowship and comradery amongst veterans. 

In addition to our regular Talk Story, Walt Tanimoto was able to secure the services of two VFW Service Officers, Charlene Brown and Delee Coulter and they were available to answer VA questions regarding benefits and claims.  Ms. Brown and Ms. Coulter appeared to be busy and held initial contact meeting with several of the veterans and their spouses.  We can’t promise that VA Service Officers will be available for every Talk Story, however we will invite them back if we have enough requests to do so.

A special thank you to Jim Kikuchi for providing the lunch meal for Talk Story.  Jim was kind enough to bring his BBQ ribs (along with two styles of homemade BBQ sauces) for the lunch and the NVC provided rice and salad.  What a great meal!

For reference purposes, future Talk Story dates for 2022 are scheduled on:  June 10, July 8, August (no Talk Story - Vacation), September 9, October 7, November 11 (Veterans Day), and December 9.    Donuts and coffee are available from 10:00am, and lunch will be served at 11:00am. 

If you would like to be included on a reminder email, please contact Keith Yamaguchi at k.yama1948@gmail.com or call or text 206 390-1253 mobile.  Bring a friend.  All are welcome!
