Vet organizations need to register with DRT

Guam - The Guam Veterans Commission meeting took an interesting turn this morning, this after learning seven out the thirteen veterans organizations represented on the board aren't registered with the Department of Revenue and Taxation as required by law.

According to Cindy Gogo with the VA office, until those organizations are registered, their votes can't be counted. "This has not affected the office operations at all," she said, "at this point in time the Commission is to oversee the operations of this office, but with it being defunct it would be very hard for Mr. (John) Unpingco to go to them for guidance and approval."

She says they need as much members as possible to have their organizations registered to have a proper quorum to elect the commission officers. The VA office will hold another meeting on September 20, hoping to elect their officers so that the governor can swear them in.
