Suicide, PTSD, the numbers are staggering. On average 22 veterans commit suicide daily. The number suffering PTSD is almost incalculable. There are services available to help veterans.
Sponsored by FW Grigg Post #68, in conjunction with the Philadelphia office of Disabled American Veterans and the Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs, will be an all day informational and service event.
The DAV will have their Mobil Service Office (MSO) and DAV staff on location.
The MSO program provides support to veterans developing, filing and winning claims for benefits administered under federal, state and local laws. National Service Officers counsel and assist with the development of evidence, completion of required applications and prosecution of claims, bringing benefit and services education to veterans and their families where they live.
There will be a seminar to explain the claims and benefits process. Following the seminar, counselors will be available to meet 1 on 1 with veterans to answer question, file claims and provide any other services as needed.
All veterans and their families are welcome, regardless of service era.
