I was elected Vice President of Manhattan and Bronx branch of American Association of Veterans of WWII from FSU. The most important task was to make a list of veterans for a medal "65 Years of Great Victory." I couldn't do it all by myself, and all local organizations were obviously neglect. But COJECO answered immediately, and next day I had a meeting with a coordinator Rimma Khalamov. She found volunteers who were calling to veterans; made a deal with "Forum" newspaper to publish my ad; invited me to use COJECO conference room to meet with veterans; made copies and typed all materials; wrote a following letter to Washington and mailed a package to Washington. Also she helped me to send letters to different organizations of Manhattan to help old veterans. In behalf of Manhattan veterans I'd like to thank COJECO for a big benevolent timely help.
