Schweyer’s office to hold monthly veterans outreach Aug. 19

ALLENTOWN, Aug. 5 – Area veterans who would like to learn more about the benefits and programs available to them and their families for their service are encouraged to attend state Rep. Peter Schweyer’s next monthly veterans support program on Friday, Aug. 19 at his district office, 1501 Lehigh St., Suite 206, Allentown.

“There are many benefits available to veterans for their service to their country and many don’t know about them,” said Schweyer, D-Lehigh. “This is a great opportunity for veterans to meet in person with an outreach specialist to review these benefits and also receive assistance with the paperwork.”

According to Schweyer, a representative from the American Legion Service Office Outreach program will be in his office to provide information on education, health care and death benefits.

Appointments with the outreach specialist are available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the third Friday of each month. Those interested in meeting with the specialist should make an appointment by calling 610-791-6270.
