Three-day event takes place Aug. 10-12 at Western Campus in Parma
Veterans and their families can learn how to claim benefits and services during the Veterans Experience Action Center scheduled for Aug. 10-12 at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free event brings together federal, state and county organizations dedicated to serving veterans. Specialists will be available to assist with filing or expediting benefit claims; health care enrollment and exams; issuing veteran identification cards; and more.
The Veterans Experience Action Center essentially serves as a claims clinic, providing a one-stop shop for answers and support.
“This is an opportunity for veterans to meet face-to-face with someone to get their questions answered,” said Rick DeChant, executive director of Tri-C’s Veterans Initiative, which is hosting the event. “This is all about meeting the needs of those who served.”
The Veterans Experience Action Center will run 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 10; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11; and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 12.
Tri-C Western Campus is located at 11000 Pleasant Valley Road in Parma. Parking is free.
