Chapman, Roy M.
NO BONUS NEEDED.
Totally blind in both eyes, caused by a high explosive shell during the St. Mihiel drive, Roy M. Chapman, former private, Company E, 314th Engineers, is still carrying on. This veteran recently completed his training under the United States Veterans’ Bureau.
Mr. Chapman is now conducting a book and stationery store at Grand Junction, Colo. At the present time he controls the book business in Grand Junction, a town of eight thousand population. He received his training in storekeeping and business methods under the United States Veterans’ Bureau at the Evergreen Institute for the Blind. Following the completion of his instruction, through the financial aid of his father and the Red Cross, he opened a book and stationery store in his home town. Today he has a complete stock of goods valued at about five thousand dollars and is making a very comfortable profit on his undertaking. He has an excellent standing in the community where he was born, which he left to go to war and to which he returned a blind veteran. All the people in the town are very much interested in his success. Mr. Chapman is assisted by his wife in his business enterprise, and she helps him with the bookkeeping and correspondence. Through the training given by the Veterans’ Bureau he has qualified himself for a useful business career. Today he is “Chapman, the Stationer and Bookman,” a happy, self-reliant young business man, with confidence in himself and his ability and a bright business future.---U. S. Veterans’ Bureau
