Are you a veteran? Would you like to learn about your health benefits? Would you like to further your education? Would you like to learn about job training? Would you like to help other veterans? Do you want to start your own business? Do you own a business and want to sell to the government? Would you like to know what death benefits are available?
Representatives from various support groups, government and not-for-profit agencies, schools, colleges, universities and the Veterans Administration will present to help veterans find real answers to health and benefit concerns, job training, education benefits and business development. Want to assist other veterans? Come in and ask how! There will be areas set aside for confidential one-on-one counseling.
Regulations are consistently changing. If you know a Veteran, urge them to attend! If you are a Veteran, we urge you to attend!
According to John Sampson, Director of the Veterans Service Agency, there are over 8,000 registered veterans in Cattaraugus County. Our mission is to ensure that every veteran in the County is registered and knows what benefits are available to him or her.
