A Northeast Georgia Veterans’ Benefits Fair is planned for later this month in Gainesville.
The event will help veterans with questions about claims, vocational rehabilitation and educational assistance programs, according to a news release from 9th District U.S. Rep. Doug Collins’ office, which is putting on the fair. The Department of Veterans Affairs and Atlanta VA Medical Center will have staff on hand at the event.
"I have been on the ground with our troops in a war zone, and to call these individuals heroes is a drastic understatement," Collins said in the release. "... This inaugural event is a great opportunity for veterans in our area to receive individualized guidance and help, and I hope we can get the word out to make sure all our veterans can get the help they need."
The event will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Paul E. Bolding Post 7 at 2343 Riverside Drive.
If you are interested in attending or would like more information, call the Collins’ district office at 770-297-3388 and ask for Cindy Dyer or Lisa Simmons.
