|UAW Local 1714|
The Veteran's Committee is a vital link to inform the membership on issues and rights afforded to our Veterans and their families in this local union. This committee helps to insure that benefit regulations and Veterans laws, which are constantly changing, are available to this membership. They are also a resource for outside activities pertaining to Veterans' affairs.
Members of the committee are: Kevin Zuschlag (Chairperson), David Yukon, Jose Valentin, Jonathan Rathbun, Mark Haeffner
The Veterans Committee has held various raffles to raise funds to make contributions to VA Clinics and donate Thanksgiving turkeys to Veterans in need and participated in area Veterans Day Parades. Some of our Veterans Committee members are also members of the Honor Guard for the UAW-GM Lordstown Complex, posting the Colors for various events. Some also make the annual trip to Washington D.C. at their own expense, to place a wreath at the Viet Nam Veterans Memorial.
