Rep. Tina Pickett’s (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) district office in Sayre will resume hosting veterans assistance hours on the third Monday of each month, starting Oct. 18. This free in-person service will be provided by the VFW, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., by appointment only.
Veterans do not need to be a member of the VFW to receive this free service. Appointments can be made by calling Pickett’s Sayre office at 570-888-9011. The office is located at 106 W. Packer Ave.
Luis Ybarra, an assistant service officer with the VFW, can help with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to benefits for veterans.
Participating veterans should bring their DD-214 along with any supporting medical documents. They are also asked to wear a face mask while meeting with the service officer.
