Organization helps veterans learn what benefits are available to them

Updated: Sep 8, 2013 09:43 PM

Updated September 9, 2013:  It can be difficult for military veterans to keep up with what benefits and services are available to them.

A non-profit called Disabled American Veterans (DAV) is working to help keep veterans up-to-date and visited Parsons on Monday.

"Veterans out in more rural areas like this, Parsons and other areas like that, they usually don't get out to bigger cities like Wichita or Topeka or areas like that where we are usually located at," says Korby Rhodes, a National Service officer for DAV.  "They don't know what's going on at Capitol Hill with certain veterans benefits or anything like that so they want to be kept up on current events so that's what we try to pass on with them."

Posted September 8, 2013:  Many veterans feel confused about benefits and service they've earned.  There's so much to know and so many changes from one year to the next.  The nonprofit D-A-V (Disabled American Veterans) hopes to help.

The DAV mobile service will be in Parsons, KS to personally provide counseling and claim filing assistance available.  All service are free to all veterans and family members.

The DAV will visit Parsons' Community Based Outpatient Clinic Monday, Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.  The clinic's location is 1907 Harding Drive.
