Madison County's veterans service officer, Tom Logue, asked local officials to adopt the resolution remembering the country's veterans who gave their lives in service."It's important we bring this to everybody's attention," he said.
After four months in his part-time job, Logue is trying to bring his assistance to the attention of veterans in the county.He has started an outreach program to inform the public that his office in the Chancery Court Building in Canton is available to assist veterans who would ordinarily not be reached.
Madison County has 5,307 veterans, who receive a total of $19 million in financial assistance.Annually, a total of 1,815 veterans were patients at the Veterans Administration hospital in Jackson receiving care worth $9.46 million, Logue said.
"I am trying to hand out cards to as many veterans as I can to let them know I'm here," said Logue, who retired with 34 years of active duty in the Army, reserves and National Guard."I do not take working with veterans lightly."
There are so many different programs available to help veterans and sometimes the paperwork involved can be overwhelming, Logue said.That's when he can step in to help cut through red tape.
"But it's more than just forms.I can think about it and figure out ways to help them," he said."My job is to maximize their benefits if I can."
He has helped veterans track down records or old buddies to verify what they did in the military, assisted others in getting needed medical treatments or other benefits and prescriptions and helped with death benefits for widows.
"I feel like I owe it to the veterans because so many people helped me along the way," Logue said.
With only a few months on the job, Logue said he's still learning.But his background working with veterans groups as a volunteer prepared him for the job, said Logue, who has also been active in Ridgeland civic affairs.

Tom Logue was among them.

We dropped out of high school and went in together , we came back and went to college together.Now we're going to funerals , he said Friday.
The volunteers all wore the red and white D emblem of the 31st Infantry Division -- the Dixie Division..
...
Logue , who is now president of the 31st Infantry Dixie Division Association , said he knew when he took over the decade-long effort to win the highway dedication the division would have to shift the focus to what they were really all about.
When I took over , I said lose the flag , ' he said.We don't need it.It wasn't really a part of our division anyway..
So the battle flag came off association stationery.The large sign that went up marking the highway has 31st Infantry Division in large letters with the division symbol , two red Ds inside a red circle , beneath.In small print under the symbol , the words Dixie Division explain what the two Ds stand for.
...
Logue , who was a part of the division's 106th Engineering Battalion , pointed to an old photo of a dirt road the division carved out of the trees in the Philippines during World War II , with a sign dubbing it Dixie Hi-Way..
If we can have a highway in the Philippines named after us , we can , by God , have one in Mississippi , he said.

Dr. Tom Logue, Veterans' Service Officer for Madison County, was the guest speaker at a recent Canton Lions Club meeting at Penn's Fish House in Canton.He gave a brief summary of his duties as service officer.

According to Logue, as recently as 2003 there were 5,307 veterans in Madison County receiving benefits totaling over $21,000,000; another 1,185 were in VA hospitals.As service officer for the county, Logue helps veterans in their transition into civilian life.He works with those who deserve medical assistance, disability checks, food stamps and other compensations.
Logue reminded the Lions Club members, a number of whom are veterans, that in order to qualify for living in a Veterans Administration home, individuals must be able to prove they have served at least one day on active duty during war time.He concluded by informing the group that there are more than two dozen qualified veterans in the Canton area needing help but who cannot be located so that compensation may be awarded.
For those seeking information, the Veterans' Service Officer is located in the Chancery Administrative building in Canton.
