This weekend, Saturday June 01st, for the second year, Congresswoman Grace Napolitano will be having another wonderful  Veteran Forum.

If you are wondering where your claim is in the rating process, this is the event to attend. If you want to know why you were denied, again, you should attend.

Want to start a claim?? Yup, this will be available to you at this event by accredited service officers. VASH Voucher referrals, employment assistance, education  benefit explanations, opportunity to register with the VA and much more will be at this event.

PS. For the active duty servicemember’s who will be ETS’ing or those getting ready to retire, this event is one for you. Spouses who wonder how Post 911 applies to you or even have questions about what benefits, entitlements and local resources available, you guessed it, this is the event you don’t want to miss.
