State Sen. Lisa Baker invites veterans of all ages and from all service eras to utilize the Pennsylvania Veterans of Foreign Wars Service Officer Network to receive free information and assistance for government benefits including VA healthcare, compensation, pension, education and dependent benefits.

Surviving spouses are also entitled to these services at no charge to learn about their eligibility for VA benefits.

All veterans, not just VFW members, can request appointments between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
