There’s help for veterans who need to apply for disability benefits.
The Holyoke chapter of the Disabled American Veterans held a pop-up clinic event at the Holyoke Medical Center Monday night.
DAV helps vets, many who have PTSD, navigate the complicated paperwork to secure the benefits that are theirs by right.
“But they made that promise when you raised your right hand and said you would defend the constitution,” said Arthur Geary of the local chapter. “They also raised their right hand and said we will take care of you and your families.”
Geary told 22News that his organization will help any veteran or surviving spouses obtain benefits, free of charge.
This includes hearing aids.
Any veteran can come to the War Memorial in Holyoke Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
