For Veterans Groups, Questions Surround Trump's VA Nominee
Trump reportedly considered Hegseth for the VA role after his election, at which time Hegseth said he would " of course " accept. Ronny Jackson's vision and qualifications", said Paul Rieckhoff, founder and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

In a press release published on its website, Valpak said that recipients of the checks need not pay or purchase anything as the checks are meant to be cashed out. As a national promotion, we're including $100 checks.

West Michigan owner, Lia Jensen told Fox 17 that 36 checks were sent to different homes in the Grand Rapids area in 2017 but only eight were claimed.

Officials haven't said how many checks they're sending out or how many have been cashed.

Man shot by Norman police in critical condition
After failing to comply with officer commands, the man went into the apartment, barricading himself inside, police said. Crime scene tape weaved in and out of the Battleground Village parking lot and across the street to Total Wine & More.

Jensen said they did the same special past year with around 36 checks of $100 delivered to Grand Rapids homes, but only about eight checks were actually cashed. The people from Valpak are hoping that the people who are lucky enough to get that $100 check in their mailer will spend it on one of the great companies that advertise with Valpak.

The unexpected bonus will show up in random envelopes each month this year. According to the Valpak website's disclaimer, "Checks are randomly inserted".
