Governor Steve Sisolak recognizes immediate Past President Linda Dickinson, of the Vietnam Veterans of America – Sierra Nevada Chapter 989 as Nevada’s Veteran of the Month for September, 2019.  Linda was recognized for her tireless work on behalf of veterans in Northern Nevada and leadership of Chapter 989 over the previous four years.  Friends from Veterans Services Organizations from all over the area, and VVA Chapter 388 in Carson City, attended the ceremony and shared stories of Linda’s cooking skills and good humor when the situation warranted it.  As she remains a practicing nurse today, and previous US Air Force Nurse in the 1970’s, made Linda a great choice to Chair the Citizens Advisory Council for the new Northern Nevada State Veterans Home in Sparks.  Linda was also recognized by representatives of Nevada’s two US Senators and US House of Representatives as a strong and faithful champion for veterans in Northern Nevada.
