For some veterans the path to good information about services and benefits can be confusing and complicated. On Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Veterans’ Affairs Mobile Information Van will be parked at University College at Rockland on Route 1 at the Breakwater Building.

Staff from the VA say the van travels around to help veterans “get the benefits they deserve.” Active military personnel, veterans and their family members are invited to this event at University College at Rockland.

Participants will: visit the university center to explore local college options, tour the Mobile Vet Center, meet Rockland Center staff as well as other Veterans Services staff.

The event is a collaborative effort hosted by University College at Rockland and the University of Maine at Augusta.

UMA Veterans Services staff present will be Amy Line, UMA coordinator of the Military Achievement Project. Line is a Navy veteran, UMA alumna and adjunct faculty member whose husband currently serves in the Navy.

“We sincerely appreciate the service and sacrifices our veterans have made to our nation. UMA has been nationally recognized as a veteran-friendly campus and has a long history of helping veterans transition into higher education,” Line said in a news release.

In addition the traveling staff of the Mobile Vet Van will be present to answer more general questions.
