The Orange Leader
Orange County Veterans Office, 109084 FM 1442 in Orange, is interested in educating veterans and their widows concerning Veterans benefits.
“We are having a hard time reaching Vietnam veteran widows,” Veterans Service Officer F.E. Gene Smith said. “Many do not realize they can receive benefits if their husband died from Agent Orange Exposure, even if he was not registered at the VA.”
Gene also said that the Veterans Service Office is seeing more Vietnam widows as time progresses but they are the hardest to reach.
“So many do not realize that they maybe entitled to benefits.” Smith said.
If any service organization would like the local Veterans office to speak at a meeting to educate the members about Veterans benefits, call 409-745-1535.
