V.E.T.S. Honor Guard Receives State Grant

The V.E.T.S. Honor Guard, Franklin, was recently awarded a $10,000 state grant to assist families and funeral directors with providing full military honors at funeral services, according to Senator Scott Hutchinson.

The honor guard was one of 10 charitable organizations statewide selected by the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to receive grants from the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust Fund (VTF).

“This grant will support this great organization in its mission of providing our service members with the honors they’ve earned and truly deserve,” said Senator Hutchinson. “We owe a debt to the men and women who serve in our armed forces and the V.E.T.S. Honor Guard helps the Commonwealth and the community fulfill that obligation.”

The VTF was established in 2012 and DMVA is authorized to solicit and accept donations to the VTF on behalf of the commonwealth. Tax-deductible donations to the VTF can be made to:  PA Veterans’ Trust Fund, Bldg. 0-47 Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, PA 17003.

Pennsylvania residents can also make a voluntary donation to support these grants when applying for or renewing their driver’s license or photo ID and renewing a motor vehicle registration, as well as purchasing an Honoring our Veterans license plate.
