Disabled veterans in southern Minnesota are getting some extra help this week in keeping up with changes in their benefits. The Disabled American Veterans’ Mobile Service Office is offering free help during its upcoming tour of the local area. The mobile office is a fully staffed van that travels the country, making stops in each state to advise veterans on questions about services, benefits and entitlements. The van will be in Mankato from 8:30 to 4:30 today (MON) at the Nichols Office Center; at the St. James VFW from 8:30 to 4:30 on Wednesday; at the New Ulm DAV chapter office on South Valley Street from 8:30 to 4:30 on Thursday; and at the Sibley County Service Center in Gaylord from 8:30 to 4:30 on Friday. The counseling is being offered free of charge with no appointment required. For more information check out www.dav.org.
