American Legion hosts info session on processing claims for veterans July 17th

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Local veterans have the chance to learn about how to process claims in a timely fashion. The class will be held on Monday night at 6 p.m  at the American Legion Post 29.

Veteran's Service Officer William Trice wants veterans to know this service is available and they are here to help.

"It's important to let the veterans know how the system works. He doesn't want to submit a claim and it takes a year or longer to do. He wants to submit it as fast as he can and move on with his life."

The American Legion Post 29 is located at the corner of 11th and F in Lawton. Trice says families are welcome to come and learn this useful information.

There are another 16 topics that will be covered in the future, each taking place once a month.
