Veterans' Relief Fund Improves Lives
Western Washington is home to an extensive array of military facilities for active-duty Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard members. Many service members get introduced to the Pacific Northwest’s charms while stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Naval Station Everett, Coast Guard Base Seattle, Naval Base Kitsap, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, and others. More than a few return to this area after discharge to enjoy the natural beauty this area has to offer.
The Veterans’ Relief Fund (VRF), initially called the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Fund, was established in the late 1800’s by Washington State to assist indigent veterans and their families. The VRF continues to provide emergency assistance and referrals for indigent veterans living in Lewis County. More
