(INDIANAPOLIS) - Today, the Indiana Department of Veterans' Affairs (IDVA) will begin traveling with the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay throughout all 92 counties in the state.

A Signature Project for the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, the Torch Relay is a 3,200 mile journey beginning in Corydon, the state's first capital, and finishing in Indianapolis at the Statehouse on October 15.

In each county, IDVA will be hosting a community outreach booth for veterans, service members and their families. The booths will offer a variety of assistance for participants including job placement opportunities, remission of fees, VA benefits, claims process and education opportunities.

"We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to follow the Torch Relay and at the same time reach out to veterans in all corners of the state," said Jim Brown, Director of IDVA. "IDVA will be offering services to help veterans understand their benefits and learn about opportunities to help them financially, professionally, and personally. I encourage veterans to visit us in each county during this historic event - you will not want to miss it."
