Peggy GriffinThese remarks were prepared by Peggy Griffin, of Wellesley, at the dedication in Framingham on Nov. 27 of the MetroWest Vietnam War Memorial.Thank you for coming today and for giving me the opportunity to share my thoughts with you.“I did not want Daddy to die”These are the anguished words my daughter Danielle cried out the morning of June 11, 2009 when I told her father had died early that morning. These words or a variation of them have been spoken by all the families who lost a soldier due to their service in Vietnam.My husband was Charles J Sabatier Jr. He was in the 25th Infantry Division of the US Army. He was drafted out of Galveston, TX, but spent much of his adult years in the Wellesley area. Charlie was shot in the first few days of the Tet Offensive on February 3, 1968. It was the first year Tet was not a time of peace but was a time of war and it took the United States by surprise.I met Charlie in 1979 after the War was over. He was charismatic, engaging and handsome. I had never met anyone like him before.He talked littl...

New council will advise state on veterans' services - Wicked Local Acton

Monday, November 14, 2016

I know when I came back from Afghanistan I didn't know veterans services existed," said Kalpee, who took one tour of Afghanistan in 2013 and 2014 and is now the veterans' service officer for Wellesley, Wayland, Weston, and Needham. Kalpee said when she returned home she was not at first aware of the state's "welcome home bonus" - a $1,000 payment available to those who lived in Massachusetts a year ahead of a deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan.A Roslindale resident, Kalpee said she did receive her welcome home bonus, which was "great, especially because when I came back from Afghanistan, raising two kids, I couldn't find a job right away, so it was helpful." Kalpee's children are ages 8 and 10 and she has help raising them from family, she said.U.S. Army National Guard Col. Andrea Gayle-Bennett, another member of the new council, said she is interested in finding support services for families that don't fit the more traditional gender breakdown of a man in uniform and a wife at home, and wants to encourage opportunities for women in military careers."We have a challenge in the National Guard in mentoring and retaining women so that they can rise in the ranks," said Gayle-Bennett, who has spent 33 years in the Guard.Gayle-Bennett, a Lynn resident who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2009, has a husband and four grown children and she said her husband was "not interested" in activities for military spouses because "it's all women.""When you think of a veteran spouse, you think of a woman. You don't think of a man. So what programs are there for a female veteran's spouse?" Gayle-Bennett asked.At the same time veterans halls - such as the Veterans of Foreign War posts - have a history of being more male dominated."You think old men. You don't think women," said Gayle-Bennett. She said she was encouraged to hear that a woman became a VFW post commander in Beverly, and she said she started a military ministry at her church in Saugus and joined her local VFW post in Saugus.Gayle-Bennett said she hoped to get a sense of the landscape of veterans' needs before suggesting any solutions.The council's chairman is Mike Minogue, a West Point graduate who was an infantry officer in the U.S. Army's Airborne and Ranger divisions during the Gulf War - where he earned a bronze star. He is now the CEO, president and chairman of Abiomed Inc.The council's other members are Kristine Babcock, who served in the U.S. Navy from 1988 to 19...
