ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An outreach program of the Disabled American Veterans is traveling the state to bring Veterans the help they need. The DAV Mobile Service Office set up at the American Legion Post 512 in Albany Thursday.
They help straighten out any confusion about benefits available to veterans or their surviving spouses. They help in the claim and appeal process to get Vets the benefits they are entitled to.
Joshua Sniegowski said, "A lot of vets can't make it all the way to see us. We're in Atlanta and some vets are too disabled actually to come to Atlanta, do their paperwork there. We're going to come to them to provide them because they need that representation."
The next stop for the Mobile Services Office will be in Macon tomorrow. If you missed them, you can always call the office in Atlanta. That number is 404-929-5956.
