Veterans can now participate in round table event to learn about benefits

BEDFORD – The Lawrence County Commissioners granted Veterans Affairs Officer Brad Bough to participate in a veterans round table coffee hour for all military personnel.

Retired Chief Petty Officer Lou Mexie is organizing the monthly event which will be held on the third Tuesdays of each month from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at the Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 7th and R streets.

Those attending will share conversations and learn about the many benefits and entitlements available for veterans and their widows and children.

“This will not cost the county anything,” said Mexie. “Everyone is welcome to attend.”

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

Bough said just this month he has helped 10 widows with paperwork to receive much needed benefits.
