Legion reaching out to California veterans

Department of California Legionnaires will team up with American Legion national staff for a district revitalization and veterans outreach effort in two locations starting Dec. 7. Veterans and active-duty military in the Vacaville and South Gate areas are invited to get information about American Legion programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs and other veterans benefits.

The effort will take place at the following locations:

• 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 7-8 and 9 a.m.-noon Dec. 9 at Rago-Christopher American Legion Post 165, 549 Merchant St., Vacaville.

• 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 8-9 at South Gate American Legion Post 335, 9535 California Ave., South Gate.

A county veterans service officer will be available at both locations to assist with VA questions and other benefits-related issues.
