he Local Union 73 Veterans Committee is dedicated to honoring the strength and courage of all United States military veterans who have served our country during times of war and peace. The Committee typically meets every other month at the Union Hall.
Due to the generosity of members, vendors and other caring supporters, we are able to send care packages to our troops. The Committee has also contributed to worthy organizations like the Edward Hines Jr. Veterans Administration Hospital, Salute, Inc., Homes For Our Troops, Vet Dogs, Medals of Honor, and more.
With respect, honor and gratitude, we thank those who have served our country and protected our freedoms!
