Senator Martin to Host Monthly Veteran Service Officer Days Beginning Sept. 12

STRASBURG – To connect more local military heroes with the benefits they earned by serving our country, Senator Scott Martin (R-13) will host monthly office hours specifically for veterans.

Martin will host his first Veteran Service Officer Day on September 12 from 9 a.m. to noon at his district office at 135 East Main Street, Suite 1-A in Strasburg. A VFW Veteran Service Officer will be available to assist veterans and their families who have questions or need assistance with health care, disability claims, GI bill assistance and other veteran benefits.

Local individuals or family members are encouraged to schedule a specific time to meet with a representative by contacting Martin’s office at 717-397-1309 to ensure their questions are answered.

Veterans are encouraged to bring their DD-214 or Veterans DD-214 for prompt assistance.

Martin noted that in a recent legislative survey he conducted regarding benefits for veterans, nearly half of respondents said they need more information on the programs and services available to them.

“There are many state, local and federal resources that support the brave men and women who have protected our freedoms. The challenge is making sure our veterans are aware of all these benefits,” Martin said. “I am optimistic these new monthly office hours will help connect more of our local veterans to the benefits they deserve.”
