Disabled veterans were able to get some services today without having to leave town.
The Disabled American Veterans mobile office van was parked outside of the Department of Labor office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.
The DAV supplied benefits counseling and services to vets and their families. They also checked statuses on appeals or pending claims.
The mobile office makes yearly trips throughout Idaho, so vets don’t have to go to the state’s regional office.
“A lot of times, they cannot make it out to the Boise office,” said Kimo Hansen, DAV supervisor. “We give veterans the chance to be able to be seen, in person, at thier actual location.”
If you missed the van, don’t fret, in the membership section of DAV’s websiteyou can find out how to get in touch with your local chapter.
