Disabled veterans receive assistance in Richland
Disabled veterans in the Tri-Cities who need assistance understanding the benefits and services they've earned by serving our country get the help they need today.
The non-profit group Disabled American Veterans came to Richland today to help veterans file claims.
Workers say some of the paperwork from Veterans Affairs is complicated and tough to understand, so they help sort through it so veterans know what they're reading.
Veterans say these benefits help them survive, and if they don't understand what they're looking at, they could lose out.
"I'm surprised. I really questioned whether it would be any benefit to me. But when I came here just to thank them, they opened a lot of doors that was closed. What help they are? Well, I'd say they're a godsend" said Alfred Lentz, World War II veteran.
The mobile service office is heading to Moses Lake tomorrow.
All of the workers in the office are also disabled veterans.
