Veterans’ assistance at Peifer’s office


January 8, 2014

HONESDALE, PA — Reaching out to area veterans and their families, Rep. Mike Peifer will again host the American Legion Service Officer Outreach program at his Honesdale office on Monday, January 13.

A service representative will be at the office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Appointments are required and can be made by calling Peifer’s office at 570/253-5533.

“Our veterans have given so much to our country and our Commonwealth. The benefits we provide to them are a small token of recognition and appreciation for their service,” Peifer said. “I encourage any veteran, regardless of whether he or she is a member of the American Legion, to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Typically, the service representative is available in Peifer’s office on the second Monday of the month. The American Legion program offers veterans assistance with compensation, education, pension, health care and death benefits. Veterans need not be a member of the American Legion to use the service.
