“Bringing the VA Mobile Medical Team, Veteran Service Officers and other vendors here helps local vets get the services they need,” said Phil Garcia, South Santa Clara Valley Memorial District Board President. “Going to Palo Alto or even San Jose can be a burden for those who need VA services the most.”

The event will include medical professionals, counseling, benefits assistance, and local businesses with services specifically for veterans.

Santa Clara County Veterans Service Officers will educate veterans on benefits, start claims, discuss education assistance and even start the process for obtaining a new driver’s license with a veteran’s designation.

Veterans need to bring either their VA card and/or a DD214 for proof of service.

The Veterans Memorial Hall is home to the American Legion Post #217, the American Legion Auxiliary, the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) John A. Berri Post #6309 and the VFW Auxiliary. For more information about the Hall email sscvmd@gmail.com or call 408/842-3838.
