Region 8 veterans are getting help | News
JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Disabled American Veterans Mobile
Unit van out of Little Rock was in Jonesboro on Monday.
National Veteran Service Officers were on hand to answer the
questions of Region 8 veterans and work to help them file their claims.
Junior Vice Commander of the DAV, Carl Mosby, says this is a much
needed service. "They don't know exactly what they are qualified to get
until they come here," Mosby said. "They ask a lot of questions and
can go right in to see somebody."
Mosby said they work not only to answer questions, but discover
why a claim has been denied. "We're taking care of the veteran's
claims," Mosby said. "We have a direct link to their records and
they're coming in and seeing if they can be raised up on their percentage or
what's the matter with their claims. You know, the reason it didn't go through
Mosby says this resource is also a convenient one. "It's a
way veterans can come out," Mosby said. "Put their claims in and
their 214s out here and they don't have to go through and see a lot of red tape
through the veteran's service officers. So, they can go right in and talk to a
National Veteran's Service Officer."
Mosby says they provide this service every year, and says they
hoped to see as many as 50 veterans throughout the day.
