Do you have questions about the GI Bill or any of the other benefits you earned during your service?
An informational meeting is scheduled at the Ely Public Library on the 13th of March at 6:30 PM for Veterans to learn about benefits. What are they? When do they expire? How do I apply for them? These are questions that will be answered during the session. No boring lectures, just good information.
Special Guests will be: Donald Tyne, Linn County Director of Veterans Affairs and Vicki Terronez, Veterans Service Coordinator at Kirkwood Community College
If you are a Post 9/11 Veteran you should not miss this meeting!
