Rep. Karen Boback (Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) today announced that additional monthly assistance hours will be available to area veterans and their families in her Dallas district office, located at 105 Lt. Michael Cleary Drive, beginning in September.

Brian Stolarski, department service officer with the American Legion, will offer appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Appointments for Tuesday, Sept. 24 and subsequent months can be made by calling Boback’s Dallas office at 570-675-6000.

The American Legion outreach is in addition to assistance offered by a representative from the VFW from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month at Boback’s Dallas office. There is no appointment necessary for the VFW outreach hours.

Stolarski and the VFW representative can assist veterans with compensation, pension, death benefits, education, health care issues and more. Veterans do not have to be members of the American Legion or VFW to receive assistance.

These programs connect our veterans and their families with benefits and services they earned through service to our country, and I’m pleased to be able to offer additional monthly opportunities for assistance,” Boback said. “It is an honor to aid the people who protected us.”

Monthly veterans’ assistance hours are also available at Boback’s Tunkhannock district office, located at 133 W. Tioga St., Suite 4, in Tunkhannock from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month. To schedule an appointment at the Tunkhannock office, call 570-836-4777.
