VA expands virtual services for other benefits - ongoing
Veterans continue to receive other benefits and services after the VA's Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) temporarily closed its 56 regional offices to the public in response to COVID- 19.
Veterans with specific questions can call 1-800-827-1000 or go www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/homepage for additional details. Veterans can continue to get information about benefits, file a claim online or can call for claim-specific questions.
Military Benefits - Ongoing
There are many military benefits that you may not know about. Check out a
list of some of them.
Veterans also get free entrance to national parks, refuges and other public lands. Veterans, Gold Star Families, current Military and their
dependents have free access to approximately 2,000 public locations spread out across more than 400 million acres of public lands,
which host activities to fit any lifestyle, from serene to high octane, including hiking, fishing, paddling, biking, hunting, stargazing,
camping and much more. See the site.
Thanks to our many volunteers - Ongoing
Each month, many of our members work at the Post and in the community to support our veterans. To thank them all in each edition of the Post Newsletter, takes a lot of room - due to the number of people to thank. So we are now listing them here, with a big Thank You, so we don't miss anyone. Check out who we thanked this month.
Supporting our Military
View this inspiring presentation from the third graders of Tussing Elementary, Colonial Heights, Virginia. At the end of the song you can order the sheet music.
Did you know you can send packages overseas by contacting NCPacks4Patriots, a nonprofit organization formed with the mission to support troops and their family members by providing care and comfort items and expressions of appreciation for their service and sacrifices.
Our Post has several family members serving in the Military. Also, the Post has adopted three Military units based from Garner, Cary and Knightdale US Army Reserve Centers.
