Letter: Take advantage of veterans assistance

To the Editor:

I would like to remind everyone of a very important service that’s provided by
the Dekalb County government: The Veterans Assistance Commission.

The commission’s staff are dedicated to helping veterans and their families receive the benefits they deserve. We have a large number of veterans in our county who haven’t taken advantage of this service.

They are there to help you deal with the Veterans Administration. They guided me through the process and made sure I received the benefits i had coming. They provide transportation to the VA hospitals, which means a lot to veterans who are unable to drive themselves to appointments. We’ve got vets out there going without healthcare because they are unable to drive.

If you’re a veteran and haven’t been to the V.A.C., I urge you to go and talk to
them. They are there to help.
