BY SANDY MILLER, CHAIR
The Bobby J Award is presented by the Homeless Veterans Committee to a formerly homeless veteran who has exemplified commitment, embraced change, and provided inspiration to brother and sister veterans.

“Bobby J” was a formerly homeless veteran in recovery, living in a transitional residence, who exhibited great courage in his battles with addiction and Agent Orange-related cancer. He never gave up the fight.

Nominees must have been homeless, as defined in the McKinney-Vento Act; completed a homeless domiciliary or transitional program; obtained and maintained housing in the community for at least one year; and be nominated by a VVA chapter, State Council, national committee or task force chair, national officer, or Board member.

Nomination packets must contain a copy of the individual’s DD-214; proof of program completion; and a written nomination letter of not more than 500 words on chapter, State Council, or VVA letterhead.

Completed nomination packets should be sent to: Sandra Miller, HVC Chair, P.O. Box 557, Douglassville, PA 19518.

Nominations will be accepted until June 15. The Homeless Veterans Committee will present VVA life memberships to honorees who are Vietnam veterans. Other honorees will receive life membership in AVVA.
