(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 and services catered to them.

The MSO took time out today, September 27, to sit down individually with approximately 50 veterans to address their concerns.

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

"It fluctuates," says Beemon. "Sometimes we see a lot of people one year, sometimes not so many. This is 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 by providing counseling and claim filing assistance. Like all DAV services, help from the mobile service office is free to all veterans and their families.
