Veterans town hall is Friday

RENO, Nev (KOLO) The Veterans Town Hall and Resource Fair takes place Friday, January 19, 2018 from 10:00am to 2:00pm in Room L-1927 at the Locust Street entrance of the Reno VA.

Veterans can receive free legal advice through the state Attorney General's Office of Military Legal Assistance.

That advice does not have to be veteran benefit-specific.

It can concern bankruptcy, renter's rights, even a living will.

"A need the veterans have expressed is they need legal assistance. We don't always have a resource to offer them, So this will kind of close that gap so we can assist them," says Darin Farr, Public Information Officer with the VA.

Other programs at the town hall include an update on the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home, as well as assistance with veterans' health benefit eligibility, mental health services, and suicide prevention.

All veterans, guards, reservists, and active duty military are welcome.
