– An American Legion veterans service officer will again be assisting veterans, active military members and their families during special outreach hours at Rep. Donna Oberlander’s (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) district offices.
Beginning in March, Oberlander said that Bradley Baranski will resume his in-person outreach hours in Clarion and will begin them virtually in Elderton.
“Brad has been able to assist numerous residents with a variety of veteran- or service-related concerns,” Oberlander said. “We are happy to continue to offer this service in person at our Clarion office and to expand to our Elderton office through virtual means. I am hopeful people will take advantage of this valuable resource.”
He will be available in the Clarion office on the second Friday of the month, beginning March 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Virtual hours will be available in Elderton beginning Friday, March 18.
Some of the services available to veterans and their dependents include assistance with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to veterans benefits or the U.S. Veterans Administration.
