The Hamilton County Veterans Service Officer is expanding his outreach by holding meetings in two various Hamilton County communities.
"This outreach is intended to make it easier for elderly and severely disabled VA claimants to receive help with benefits without having to contend with construction and parking issues in the downtown Chattanooga area," officials said.
