Schweyer to hold next monthly veterans outreach July 22

ALLENTOWN, July 8 – State Rep. Peter Schweyer is alerting area veterans that his monthly veterans support program will be held on Friday, July 22 at his district office, 1501 Lehigh St., Suite 206.

A representative from the American Legion will be available for in-person appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The representative will be able to discuss pensions and other compensation, as well as education, health care and death benefits.

“This is an important way we can connect our area veterans to the many benefits available to them and their families that they earned for their service and may not know about,” Schweyer said. “I am pleased to offer this program every month to make it as easy as possible to help our service men and women access their benefits in the most convenient manner.”

According to Schweyer, the monthly veterans outreach is typically offered on the third Friday of every month. However, a scheduling conflict is preventing the outreach specialist from being available on Friday, July 15 – the third Friday this month. Appointments instead are being accepted for Friday, July 22 to offer this service.

Legion membership is not required; however, anyone interested in speaking with the adviser should schedule appointments by contacting Schweyer’s office at 610-791-6270. Masks are required and CDC guidelines must be followed during the appointment.
