TSIO awarded Mike Haley with a special recognition for all his work and support of TSIO and his major contributions to our Vietnam Veterans' Day events and activities. Mike Haley is the County Veteran Service Officer (CVSO) for Chippewa Falls, WI. He participates and serves with various Veteran groups and activities. He served on TSIOs Advisory Board since 2009. In 2012 TSIO wrote and proposed a local Vietnam Veterans' Day proclamation to both the Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire City Council. Mike Haley will now be taking over the role in proposing the annual proclamation to Chippewa Falls.
TSIO also interviewed Mike Haley on the Thuy Smith Show about Veteran benefits. (Video coming soon). CVSOs Mike (CF), Eau Claire, and Trempeleau County would present an informational table to share and discuss benefits available to Veterans at our annual Vietnam Veterans' Day events. A Q&A presentation was also completed each year during this time.
Mike is a very down to earth caring person. He is professional and really knows his work. "He is my friend that I love and admire". Thuy Smith
Thank you Mike for all that you've done for TSIO and the contributions to your community. In the "Vietnamese Tradition" we hereby make you our #1 CVSO.
People Making a Difference
Too many times there are people who do great things (big or small), but never get recognized. Sometimes its because people don't give proper credit to where credit is due and so other people's ideas, accomplishments, or other acts of "Greatness" never become known.
I admire those who do things without any thought except to do the right thing and to help someone in need. However, I feel it's important to acknowledge "Greatness" when we see it.
