Acton Veterans’ Newsletter

Posted to Acton Veterans' Newsletter by James MacRae

Attention Veterans of Acton!

 I would like to invite you to join our brand new Veterans’ Newsletter which is specifically tailored to inform Acton Veterans of upcoming local events, news and benefits.  Future Newsletter topics may range from information about upcoming Memorial Day Parade and Ceremonies to information about new laws or benefits regarding Veterans.  My intention, as this newsletter matures, is to not overwhelm anyone with constant emails but rather publish new and pertinent information on a bi-weekly or monthly basis.  Please Sign-up to receive future newsletters via email.  Again, I believe many of you will find this to be a helpful resource for keeping up to date on veterans’ related issues and happenings.

Legal Services for Veterans

Veterans Legal Services Team will be meeting Veterans individually to address needs such as legal advice and assistance on April 19th at the Bedford VA Hospital.  Click here for more information.
