Veterans benefits to be explained in mobile office visit

February 22, 2001

Detailed explanations of the full range of benefits available to disabled veterans and their families will be offered March 8 at a Disabled American Veterans mobile service office visit.

Like all services provided by the non-profit DAV, there will be no charge for this on-site counseling and claim filing assistance, which will be hosted by South Valley Desert Chapter 38. The service will be offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the veterans hall at 247 S. Imperial Ave. in Imperial.

A national service officer from the DAV's San Diego office will meet with the public.

"This veterans' benefits expert offers the best counseling and claim filing assistance you and your family can get," DAV national adjutant Arthur H. Wilson said in a letter inviting local veterans and their families to visit the mobile service office.

That's important, he said, because, "So many disabled veterans feel confused about benefits and services they've earned. There's so much to know … and so many changes from one year to the next."

Veterans and members of their families need not be DAV or DAV auxiliary members to take advantage of this free service. They should bring their Department of Veterans Affairs claim number and Social Security number and any other pertinent documentation to the DAV mobile service office.
