Veteran Support Center Unveiled Today

Bridgeport is the home of the first one-stop Veterans Service Center in the state, to be housed in the City’s Veterans’ Affairs Office at 752 E. Main St. The new center will allow area veterans the ability to access local, state and federal assistance, including direct submission of VA claims, advocacy for veterans and their family members; a PTSD support group and assistance with readjustment needs or concerns, in addition to the advocacy and social support services, food pantry and transportation already offered by the City.  Well it almost one stop center, prior to this interview veterans asked me if there was a way to prove they are a veteran.  The answer is yes, veterans of any length of service honorably discharged can get an official ID card but must go to Veteran’s Hospital for the card.
