The event will be held Wednesday, August 26th through Friday August, 28th from 8:00am until 5:00pm. Congressman David Rouzer will be on hand Wednesday morning for opening remarks.

The NC American Legion Veterans Assistance and Rehabilitation Division is helping with the event.

“Service – that’s what The American Legion is all about,” said W. Frank Stancil, Adjutant of The American Legion for the Department of North Carolina. “We exist to help each and every Veteran, their families and the communities they live in”, and he said.

There will be Veteran’s Law Advocates, as well as VA representatives to assist with benefits claims and healthcare concerns. Veterans that have a current VA claim, would like to file a new claim, have issues with VA healthcare, would like to apply for entrance into the VA healthcare system, or have questions regarding VA benefits are encouraged to attend.

The event is being held to provide support for Veterans and their families. Some of the collaborating partners for this event include the North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs, The American Red Cross, Military Order of the Purple Heart, County Veteran’s Services from several surrounding counties, and the Federal VA.
