Jim Corbo, a readjustment therapist counselor with the Toledo Vet Center and a retired manager of mental health programs for the American Red Cross, will speak at the 79th Annual Memorial Day Flag Raising Ceremony sponsored by the East Toledo Club.
Due to a scheduling conflict, this year’s ceremony will be held at the Christ Dunberger Post instead of Pearson Park. The Post is located on Pickle and Wynn Roads in Oregon. The Honor Guard will present the colors on Monday, May 28 at 7:30 a.m. followed by a breakfast. The public is invited.
Corbo will speak about his 30-year career with the Red Cross where he worked with military families and veterans at 38 different military installations. He spent the last 16 years in Washington D.C. at the International Red Cross headquarters. He will also talk about his work at the Toledo Vet Center where he helps combat veterans who served in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan readjust to civilian life. Their issues range from post traumatic stress disorder, to anger, substance abuse and family issues.
Corbo is a Licensed Independent Social Worker-Supervisor.
