'Rally Point' veterans’ event upcoming
Nov 27, 2012 4:20 pm
“Rally Point,” an event to connect area veterans with services in their communities, will be Dec. 7 at the Gallatin Civic Center at 210 Albert Gallatin Ave.
Rally Point is a free event open to all Tennessee veterans and their families and will feature agencies and organizations with information on a number of resources, including Veteran's Administration claim assistance, vocational rehabilitation, education, employment, mental health and housing and business loans.
Rally Point is sponsored by the offices of Tennessee's U.S. senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander and U.S. Congresswoman Diane Black, as well as Sumner County Executive Anthony Holt, Gallatin Mayor Jo Ann Graves, the Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs and the Gallatin Civic Center.
The event will be the fourth in a series of Rally Point events organized by Corker’s office in an effort to provide veterans and their families with a one-stop shop to access local resources. A combined 1,110 Tennesseans have attended Rally Point events in Knoxville, Cookeville and Jackson.
“As the mother, wife and daughter of servicemen, I believe that the brave men and women who have served our country deserve the upmost respect. I am doing everything I can to help ensure that the veterans in my district are able to easily access the benefits and resources they so rightfully deserve. Rally Point is a great way to bring together the various agencies and groups that provide services to our veterans and their families,” said Black.
Veterans with questions about the event should contact Corker’s Nashville office at 615-279-8125.
