What can Veteran Service Organizations do for me? - August 18, 2021 from 12PM to 1PM
When you need assistance in getting the benefits you or a family member is due as a veteran or an eligible dependent you should utilize the assistance of a Veterans Service Officer (VSO). You may think that VSOs are only the usual organizations like the American Legion or VFW, but all states, and many counties and local municipalities have VSOs as well. These VSOs all have your best interest in mind and exist to help you get the benefits you deserve. Watch it here.
