At Tuesday night’s Member Appreciation and General Membership Meeting, Teamsters Local 320 invited the Minnesota Disabled American Veterans (DAV MN) organization to address the more than 100 Teamsters. DAV Minneapolis Chapter Commander Jim Kline and Membership Chairman Joel James Schilling joined the meeting. Both DAV representatives spoke and discussed the various programs DAV MN provides to disabled veterans. Commander Kline informed the group that more women are in active duty than any other time in the history of the U.S. Armed Forces. Many are returning home with disabilities from the “Global War on Terrorism” and DAV MN is working to meet the new challenge.
Teamsters Local 320 Secretary Treasurer Brian Aldes presented Commander Kline with a check for $1000 on behalf of the Local Union. Donated items were collected from Teamsters Local 320 members that will be turned into cash for DAV MN through its partnership with Savers Thrift Store Company.
