Central Arizona College Helping Veterans Series offering advice and direction in Florence, Oracle

June 12, 2008

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - Central Arizona College’s Helping Veterans series designed to support military personnel and their families will continue its spring tour on Monday, June 16, in Florence and again on July 17 in the town of Oracle.

The seminars are designed to aid those who have served navigate the labyrinths of government paperwork and red tape they may encounter.

Cheryl Chase, the former Arizona state legislator and current Central Arizona College staff member, has orchestrated the series by partnering with the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services.

The free event is for all veterans – not just those returning from Afghanistan or Iraq – and does not require preregistration. The series has been making stops throughout the county this spring.

“While we are trying to help the vets from Pinal County, any veteran from any military era who lives outside the county is more than welcome to attend,” Chase said, citing the proximity of some series stops along the county border. “This is for our service personnel who have dedicated their lives in preserving our freedom. It is a small way that we can help make their transition and their lives easier.”

There will be a presentation and an opportunity to learn more about services in regards to veteran entitlement and the Montgomery G.I. Bill.

For more information about the series, please contact Cheryl Chase by phone at 520-494-5350, or by e-mail at cheryl.chase@centralaz.edu.
