LOVELOCK - A Veterans Service Officer will travel throughout the state allowing veterans, military personnel and family members to meet with a representative of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services (NOVS) to learn about benefits and services they may be eligible for but unaware of.

A Veterans Service Officer will be in Lovelock on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pershing Community Center, 820 6th St.

Pre-scheduled appointments are suggested. Walk-in appointments are welcome but can only be seen as time permits.

"Appointments at some recent locations have filled up prior to the date," said program supervisor, Scott Fincher. "With help from the community, the word has been getting out and we really encourage veterans or family members to consider making an appointment in advance."

For more information, or to schedule an advanced appointment, contact Pamela at (775) 688-1653 Ext. 6 or contact Barbara at (775) 321-4880.

Veterans are advised to bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document and/or current VA claim(s) correspondence. If the claim involves their dependents, veterans should bring marriage and/or birth certificates as well as Social Security numbers of their dependents.
