To Whom It May
We are searching
for War Veterans of Finland's Wars of 1939 – 1945 living in America.
Dear Reader, if
there is a war veteran or a "lotta" you know of in your
Family, Church, Club or Neighborhood, please inform him/her about their
rights to rehabilitation paid by the Government of Finland.
Every Veteran and Women's Auxiliary person ("lotta")
who has a Front Line insignia is entitled to rehabilitation either in
Finland or USA. Veterans
born 1926, and drafted to duty and served at Training Camps have the
same rights to rehabilitation. Also
those who after the War took part in minesweeping get the same benefits.
The program in Finland consists of two weeks in a Rehab Center
and in USA it is 10 week-days at a Physical Therapy Office. All these services are free.
The travel to Finland is paid by the Government of Finland
through KELA, the equivalent of Social Security.
