The next Kings County Military and Veterans Coalition meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 14, at 2pm at the Kings County Government Center, 1400 West Lacey Blvd, in Hanford. The meeting is held in the Multi-Purpose Room in the Administration Building.
With approximately 12,000 veterans and several thousand active duty personnel, Kings County has a significant population that is interested in and affected by issues concerning our military community and veterans in general. Veterans Service Organizations, NAS Lemoore, service providers and anyone else interested in military and veterans issues in Kings County are encouraged to attend this meeting.
If you are looking for services or possibly a new career, this meeting is a great place to start some networking. We’ll discuss several issues including veteran’s legislation. We’ll also have the VA Healthcare Enrollment Specialist from the VA Hospital in Fresno as our guest speaker. He’ll give a brief presentation on VA Healthcare eligibility and be able to answer any questions you may have. He will also be able to enroll folks into VA Healthcare while he is here. If you have questions about the coalition, please contact Joe Wright as noted below. Please mark your calendar and attend this meeting!
