The Alabama State Bar Volunteer Lawyers Program teamed up with the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs today to host a special event for veterans and their families in Gadsden. The event was billed as a Supermarket of Veterans Benefits and Professional Services and was held at Gadsden’s Convention Hall. More than 20 vendors participated in the event, allowing local veterans to learn more about everything from VA benefits to free legal assistance.Veterans who don’t make it to events like the one held today can always call the new Alabama Veterans Cellular Broadcast Network for information and updates on VA benefits. That number is 231-460-1060 and is available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. You can also visit the Etowah County VA office which is located in room 202 of the Etowah County Courthouse.
