J. Wilbur Adams VFW Post
3404 is dedicated to helping all
American veterans in their time of need. If you are a
veteran or know of a veteran that is in need of assistance, please contact
the post at 417-865-6929. You may also contact the Post Service Officer,
Bill St. Gemme directly at 417-840-1230.
Post 3404 offers LIMITED FINANCIAL AID to
veterans-in-need. Such aid may be for partial payment on a utility or rent
bill, food coupons, or gas cards. If you need some assistance, call for an
appointment. Then bring your DD-214 and a copy of the bill. The bill is
necessary so that the name and address of the company and your account
number is available. If approved, the check will be written to that
company, along with your account number, and mailed to the company's
address. We do not provide cash. We will provide aid as necessary.
Service Officers can help
with initial filing of disability benefit claims with the Veterans
Administration. Veterans do not have to have served overseas or in a combat
zone to qualify to receive a benefit.
A Service Officer will be
at the Post on the first Saturday of each month from 0900 to 1200 to
provide assistance. The veteran may also call the post Tuesday through
Saturday (0900 to 1400) for assistance.
If a Service Officer is
not available, please leave a message to include the veteran's name, phone
number, time you called, and a message. A Service Officer will return your
call as soon as possible.

website also has a great amount of assistance information. To visit the
