U.S. Congressman Charlie Dent Hosts:

Veterans Resource Expo

Congressman Dent will be hosting a Veterans Resource Expo on Saturday, July 23, 2011, for local veterans and their families at Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC). The event will educate veterans, especially those recently returning from service in Iraq or Afghanistan, about the benefits -- education, disability, compensation, and other applicable entitlements -- available through government agencies. Representatives from county, state, and federal veterans’ affairs departments will be on hand to explain their agency’s role in the benefit process and describe the various services they provide veterans and their families.

Additionally, representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will be available to discuss the Patriot Express Loan program. A Mobile Vet Center from the Veterans Administration’s Wilkes-Barre Medical Center will also be on site.
