Veterans whose social security numbers end in 00-33 should try to attend Thursday, those with numbers ending in 34-66 should attend Friday and those whose numbers end in 67-99 should attend Saturday.

Questions about claims, benefits and other topics will be answered at this meeting. North Carolina county veteran services officers will be in attendance to help veterans and their families. Veterans need to bring their military discharge papers, medical records, and other relevant correspondence.

There will be concessions offered and other community-based organizations will be on hand to provide support.
