A group of veterans in La Crosse are getting a helping
hand to better access their benefits.
The Benedictine Living Community of La Crosse is now
offering one- on- one
access to Veterans Affairs representatives
to their community members.
The 'Our Veteran Promise' program aims to make veterans
benefits more accessible to former service members
that may not know about all the benefits they are
Community Directors say the easy access to a representative
can really make a difference in the lives of these
Having that person come here, having that one-on-one
representation, it gives them a little bit of peace
of mind to know that we're helping them out, just
to make sure that they're aware of everything that
they're eligible for.
The program officially began this afternoon with a
ceremony honoring veterans in our community.
