It's Memorial Day weekend — a time to remember the needs of our vets and their families.
Unfortunately, our state and local governments do a pretty mediocre job of letting veterans and their families know about a service funded by the Commonwealth — the veteran's agent. Every city and town in the state has an agent assigned to it. The agent's job is to assist veterans and their families (including surviving spouses and disabled children) identify appropriate Veterans Administration benefits and state services for veterans and apply for them. This service is free.
To find out more, click here or call your city or town hall and ask for the veterans agent.
