Lloyd Z. Remick, Esq. Appointed to Philadelphia Veterans Advisory Commission.

March 29 is National Vietnam Veterans Day and so I am honored and bluntly humbled to let my friends and associates know that this past month, after being vetted, the City of Philadelphia has appointed me as a commissioner for the Philadelphia Veterans Advisory Commission.

Ever since my early army officer days I have attempted in a variety of ways of giving back to the military; veterans; police; first responders; fireman who do so much for us and make such sacrifices.

PVAC has a function of helping military and veterans and their families of helping them transition back to civilian life.

As we approach national Vietnam veterans day, yes, it is nice to say thank you for your service but the reality is, take an extra few minutes, contact your local veteran charity organizations and do a little more to help these brave men and women military, police, fireman, and their families who are really the bulwark of our civility and protector of our liberties.
