Dougherty County - Disabled veteran's often have unanswered questions and concerns about benefits and rights.

On Thursday, a Disabled American Veterans Mobile van from Atlanta rolled into Albany to answer questions.

A National Service Officer talks with veterans about their war experiences to see if they're eligible for aid. Vietnam Veteran, John Henry Wright, "I came out to see exactly what's available for veterans because I know for a fact, that we deserve more than what we have gotten in the past."

The DAV Mobile van will be in Columbus tomorrow and Saturday.

DAV is a non-profit organization that has aided more than one million veterans disabled during time of war or armed conflicts.
