Veteran Assistance and Information
Contact American Legion Post 179 Service Officer Mr. James Hollon for local assistance.
Accredited American Legion Service Officers are specially trained to provide expert assistance, free of charge, to veterans and their families. While the majority of a service officer’s work involves application for VA disability benefits, these compassionate professionals also provide information, referrals, and resources on education, employment, and business, death benefits, and other important topics. Find a Certified Veteran Service Officer in you area.
The VA PACT Act
- The VA wants veterans and survivors to apply now for their PACT Act benefits.
- Because these conditions have already taken a serious toll on so many veterans and their families, the VA considers all conditions established in the PACT Act to be presumptive on August 10th, 2022, the date the bill was signed into law.
- The VA will begin processing those presumptive benefits for veterans and survivors on the earliest date possible, which is January 1st, 2022.
- Any veteran or survivor can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting the VA's PACT Act webpage or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411.
