We are creating a mobile computer unit to deploy to serve our rural Veterans that can not digitize their own forms for electronic submission to the VA. If you or anyone you know has an old laptop that you don’t use anymore and can donate it please contact as soon as you can. Our Veterans are going to need as much help as they can get. Thank you again.

Also in the picture is Edna Vassar (center right) Dwayne Vassar Sr (on one knee) Jean Vassar (center left). We are all volunteers for Sergeant Majors Place.
Our team had a great time at the summit in Dallas. We left with a lot of information that will help us to help others. We met many people with a wealth of knowledge. As a veteran I was very excited to learn about the new direction that the VA is headed. We heard about the many good initiatives out there to help not only with general health, but also mental health and the homelessness crisis facing so many of our veterans today.
Another one of the larger topics discussed while we were at the summit is the mission act. I’m glad to see that the VA is finally taking steps towards helping those in more rural areas and those that have a hard time getting in the VA facilities. If you’re not familiar with the mission act, here is the link. Please take your time to take a look at it, share it with your friends as well as other veterans that might need it.
Thank you to whom ever bought these for us from Amazon smile. They will make awesome goodie bags for this coming giving season. Your contribution will make a lot of people very happy. Thank you again and God bless you.
In these hot Texas summer days, There is relief on the horizon. The great folks at the Friendship Church in Bastrop are handing out free Fans ever Monday in August from 8-11am. so if you or someone you know is in need is a fan please stop by. God Bless.
On Monday April 1st Sergeant Major’s Place was able to help 2 couples down on their luck.
Jean was approached by a gentleman named Christopher who was in search of a helping hand. He explained that he and his wife along with another couple were looking for someone who could help them with buying them some food he offered to sell her a scooter in exchange for money for food, After some discussion Jean and I decided to take them to Heb and have Sergeant Majors Place purchase them a weeks worth of groceries. While shopping with Christopher’s wife Ebony and their friend Kristy we learned that they a had come to Bastrop from Houston for a family emergency and had fallen on hard times when their car broke down. We also learned that they had already received help from the local police department and were currently seeking help from other organizations in Bastrop. I would like to give a shout out to the Bastrop Police Department for putting these folks in a hotel for a couple of days at no cost to the couples. This is an example of of how quickly we can go from doing okay to being homeless. Although they are not homeless as of yet they are afraid that it is right around the corner.
God will always give you the help you need if you just listen and obey.
