2022 Armed Forces Day Dinner

Date: Friday, May 20, 2022
Tamarack Junction Casino

Guest Speaker: Mr. Fred Wagar
Director, Nevada Dept. of Veterans Services

Mr. Wager was appointed the Director of NVDS by Governor Sisolak on April 29th to replace retiring COL Kat Miller. Most recently Wagar has been the Department's Deputy Director for Operations, where he oversaw Veterans Service Officers, who assist veterans in filing claims with the Veterans Administration, free of charge. He also oversaw programs involving outreach and advocacy for veterans. Wagar brings vast experience in connecting veterans to services and benefits with a strong background and expertise in helping disabled veterans. He previously  served as a military service coordinator for the Department of Veterans Affairs in Las Vegas, where he helped people through the medical evaluation board process.

Wagar served as a combat engineer in the North Dakota National Guard from 1975 until 1983. After a seven-year hiatus, he joined the Army in 1990 and served as an Arabic linguist/interrogator. He was involved in numerous deployments to the Middle East. In 1998, he was discharged from the Army and joined the Army Reserves. In addition to military service, Wagar has also played an active role in the veterans’ community. He was appointed supervisor of the Disabled American Veterans National Service Office in Reno, where he also supervised the Las Vegas office. At the same time, he co-founded the Northern Nevada Wheelchair Program, which provides mobility equipment to veterans and their dependents at no cost. Wagar is a life member of the Disabled American Veterans, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

NOTE: The chapter is no longer accepting unpaid reservations or issuing refunds. We lost over $500 on the Veteran's Day Dinner.  AUSA Westmoreland had guaranteed an attendance number to the restaurant. Then, verbally committed but unpaid no-shows decimated the planned receipts. We use the dinner overage to donate to organizations we all support. Any cancellations received after the reservation is paid will be converted to a donation. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, your donation is deductible to the extent allowed by law.
