ZANESVILLE, Ohio – For many veterans filling out paperwork with the Veterans Administration can be a headache its self.
The Zanesville branch of Disabled American Veterans is working to make that process a little easier for vets. A mobile unit will be stationed in front of their Zanesville office on Wednesday to help vets file paperwork with the VA.
Dr. David Schroder is a veteran himself and serves as the commander for Disabled American Veterans and said the mobile truck and can make the process simplified.
“The Disabled Veterans Organization has national service officers who are trained to help veterans process their claims that they have with the Veterans Administration for injuries that they have received in the military or pre-existing conditions that they aggravated by service in the military,” said Dr. Schroder.
The mobile unit will be at 428 Moxahala Ave. on Wednesday to help vets fill out paperwork and answer questions. Dr. Schroder said they hope to help several dozens veterans and that the event is open to every vet of every branch of the military.
“Some recently released veterans may not know that they are eligible for assistance from the Veterans Administration,” said Dr. Schroder. “If they would like to come and talk to the national service officers they can be advised whether they should file a claim.”
The mobile unit will be at Moxahala Ave. from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
