APPLE VALLEY – Veterans and the families of Veterans have expressed the difficulties associated with finding the proper assistance needed to locate benefits, find jobs, and receive personalized claim assistance. San Bernardino County 1st District Supervisor, known for his work aimed at assisting veterans is hosting the 4th Annual Veterans Resource Fair. The Veterans Resource Fair will be held at the Apple Valley Conference Center, located at 14975 Dale Evans Road in the Town of Apple Valley on Thursday, June 1, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

All former members of the U.S. Military are invited to the event that will highlight information on veterans’ benefits, job openings, and personalized claims assistance. Veterans in attendance will have the opportunity to meet with VA representatives who will be available to answer questions and even provide one-on-one consultations to those in need. Vocational rehabilitation, pension & compensation, education, and other veteran benefits and services information will also be available.

Lovingood said that his staff will be available to answer questions and help to troubleshoot problems. “San Bernardino County does an excellent job serving the 114,000 veterans who live in our County,” said Lovingood, an Air Force veteran. “We have virtually eliminated veteran homelessness in the County, and San Bernardino County is the highest performing county for veteran benefits in California.” Resources including assistance from Loma Linda Women Veterans Healthcare programs and applications for veterans’ license plate designation will be available.

  • Our veterans need all the help they can get. The Aid and Attendance benefit can be a great help to senior veterans and their spouses who need help paying for senior care like assisted living, home care, and nursing home care. I suggest the website http://www.VeteranAid.org. It tells you how to apply for the Aid and Attendance benefit and has a large amount of information regarding the benefit.
