      Veteran service officer for the U.P.

      More veterans across the Upper Peninsula will have access to one-on-one consultations regarding claims and benefit issues. Starting next month, a certified service officer representing the American Legion will be assigned to the U.P.

      This service will be available to ANY veteran in need of guidance. The service officer will be in the U.P. the third full week of every month. He travels to seven different locations throughout the peninsula. With nearly 30,000 vets up here, the goal is to touch the lives of as many vets, and their widows, as possible.

      â??We just donâ??t talk to veterans, we change veterans lives by how we do our claims and what we do for veterans,â?? said department service officer Patrick Kline. â??Thatâ??s what itâ??s all about.â??

      If you have any questioncal call Kline at (989) 280-3009 or (313) 964-6640.
