The family of the late Larry E. Hamor Jr., rural Tama, has learned Larry's children are eligible for certain benefits from the Eagles Memorial Foundation
Earl Rutledge, worthy president of Tama-Toledo Aeries 2828, said the children are eligible for benefits because their father died while at work. He was a two-year member of the local Eagles organization.
A letter from Thomas J. McGriff, executive secretary of the Eagles Memorial Foundation, details some of the benefits to which Larry Hamor's two elementary school-age chldren are entitled.
Included is Foundation medical assistance including doctor, dentist and hospital bills, the cost of eyeglasses, prescription medicines and medical and dental devices until they reach age 18.
In addition, McGriff wrote, the children may make use of Eagles Foundation educational benefits.
Currently, those benefits are up to $6,000 annually or up to $30,000 for all years in college or trade school. The Foundation money may be used for tuition, fees, books and course-related supplies.
