The Resources Available to Help Central Mass.Veterans
Military veterans who need some form of help have plenty of resources, but connecting the veterans to their benefits can be difficult.
Coleman Nee, State Secretary of Veterans Services, said veterans from World War II and Korea need different services than those just returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
“We have services and benefits available like long term care assistance, that some of the older vets never knew about,” Nee said. “And there are financial and medical benefits, called Chapter 115 benefits that are available from each community’s Veterans’ Service Office.”
