The 12th general body meeting of Veteran Sailors Forum (VSF), Visakhapatnam Chapter, is scheduled to be organised at Sailor’s Institute, Tarang, on Sunday.
The meeting would be chaired by Chief Staff Officer (Personnel and Administration) Real Admiral Pradeep Rana.
It is scheduled to review the present schemes and plan more welfare measures for former sailors and widows of naval personnel.
Over the years, the Indian Navy has taken several steps to fulfil its obligation towards its veterans.
To promote their cause, the VSF was established in April 2008. It comprises naval ex-servicemen, widows, and their next of kin.
The VSF assists the needy and helps in charitable and social causes.
The forum provides a platform for dissemination of information relating to opportunities for members and also for sharing their difficulties.
All retired Naval ESM and widows of naval personnel may attend the meeting after confirming their attendance to CRSO (East) office, HQENC, on phone No. 0891-2813067 and 0891-2812748 by May 19.
