ATTENTION EX-SERVICE MEN
I have received some definite in
formation in regard to the federal
board for Vocational Education for
disabled soldiers, sailors and ma
rines. This federal board is organ
ized for the benefit of disabled ex
service men' and the board is trying
to get in touch with all the disable
ex-service men who need assistance,
it matters not whether you have
ever made application for training
or whether yo uhave made an appli
cation and it has not been acted up
on, it would be wise for all who think
that they are due additional compen
sation and all those who wish to at
tend a vocational college at the ex
pense of the government to look in
to the matter. The vocational board
is trying to give everyone the bene
fit that accrues from the congress
ional act. This training costs you
absolutely nothing, the government
allowing so much for expenses and it
has proven beneficial to thousannds
of disabled ex-service men.
