Disabled American Veterans Mobile Service Office makes stop in Chattahoochee Valley

(WTVM) -

The Disabled American Veterans(DAV) Mobile Service Office (MSO) made a pit stop in the Fountain City to help veterans learn more about benefits andservices catered to them.

The MSO took time outtoday, September 27, to sit down individually with approximately 50 veterans toaddress their concerns.

The DAV has made itsrounds through Georgia, but as Senior National Service Officer of the DAV, Justice Beemon, tells us, it is important thatthe non-profit makes as many stops as possible.

"It fluctuates," saysBeemon. "Sometimes we see a lot of people one year, sometimes not so many. Thisis helpful because veterans get to actually come and sit down and talk with us,because it's hard to get us on the phone, and then get their questions answered.So it is very helpful to them."

DAV offers help byproviding counseling and claim filing assistance. Like all DAV services, helpfrom the mobile service office is free to all veterans and their families.
