Re:          Teamster Veterans


At the upcoming Convention in Las Vegas, the Teamsters Union plans on honoring veterans from recent military campaigns in the Middle East. Whether they are currently serving, have returned from Iraq or Afghanistan, were injured or died serving their country, the union wants to honor them.


On the following page, you will find a form to fill out. Please make copies of the form and fill one out for each member of your local who is serving or who has served in the Middle East.


Please make copies of this form and fill one out for each member of your local who has served in recent military campaigns in the Middle East and fax it to Victoria Sullivan at 202-624-6918.


If you have a photo of the veteran, please mail it to Victoria Sullivan, Teamsters Communications, 25 Louisiana Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001.
