Barrow will be present for each session and his office stated in a news release that it can intervene on a veteran’s behalf if he or she is having problems connecting with the Department of Veterans Affairs or getting their benefits.
Officials from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Georgia Department of Veterans Services, and several veterans’ service organizations will be present to help veterans with claims.
“It’s a disgrace that the VA has neglected so many of our veterans,” Barrow said. “While we work to rebuild the VA, we need to address the issues folks are facing right now. Sometimes a quick conversation can help resolve a veteran’s problem, and sometimes more work is need. But we can help, and these special offices hours mean veterans will have access to their congressman, the VA and other organizations that can help.”
