Joe Dissicini, right, commander of Disabled American Veterans Chapter 66 in Hammonton and a Vietnam War veteran, was the guest speaker during Hammonton Rotary Club’s Veterans Day meeting Thursday, Nov. 11 at Rocco’s Townhouse. DAV’s main mission is to provide assistance to disabled veterans, Dissicini explained, adding that one of the most common service related disabilities is post-traumatic stress disorder. In the photo, Hammonton Rotary President Robert DeRose makes a donation on behalf of the Hammonton Rotary Club toward replacing the roof at DAV Chapter 66 headquarters at 446 S. Egg Harbor Road. To be a member of the DAV you have to be at least 10 percent disabled from a service connected disability and the disability does not have to occur during wartime.
