Schweyer to host November veterans outreach program

ALLENTOWN, Nov. 7 – State Rep. Peter Schweyer invites local veterans to take part in a support program on Nov. 16 at his district office.

A representative from the American Legion will be present in Schweyer’s office – 1912 S. Fourth St. – from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov 16 to highlight services available for veterans and their families. The representative also will be available to discuss pensions and other compensation, as well as education, health care and death benefits.

Legion membership is not required to take advantage of this help. Anyone interested in speaking to the adviser is recommended to schedule an appointment through Schweyer’s office at 610-791-6270. The help is normally available on the third Friday of every month at Schweyer’s office, but this month's date was moved up a week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
