"Alfred Brodeur dedicated more than 12 years of his life to building better lives for America's disabled veterans and their families as a professional NSO," National Adjutant Arthur H. Wilson said. "His commitment to providing the best possible service to veterans, their dependents and survivors positively impacted the lives of those he served so capably. We are saddened at his passing and extend our condolences to his family and loved ones."
Born in Quebec, Brodeur later moved to Warren, Mass., where he lived most of his life. He attended the University of Massachusetts, where he studied psychology, sociology and law.
Brodeur served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1958. He served in the Navy until 1967. His service included four years in Vietnam.
Brodeur was an outreach worker for the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and as a disabled veterans outreach assistant and a claims interviewer for the Massachusetts Division of Employment Security. He joined the DAV professional staff as an NSO at the Boston National Service Office, where he served from 1982 until his retirement in 1994.
Brodeur was a life member and past Commander of Chapter 59, West Brookfield, Mass. His sisters, Jeanne Bastiste and Diane Fontaine, survive him.
