Harley’s Heroes are coming to Great Bend next week to offer free help to veterans.

Local Disabled American Veterans spokesman, Terry Young, explained a mobile DAV National Service Office will be parked at the Workforce Center, 1025 Main, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday to provide free, professional help with DAV claims.

Vets who are seeking help as part of the Harley’s Heroes Tour, need to bring their claim number, Social Security number and any other pertinent documentation.

According to national information about the DAV tour, the Harley-Davidson Foundation and DAV are partnering together “to support our nation’s heroes.”

“DAV offers a wide variety of programs and initiatives to serve those who served. Assistance is provided in various ways; helping veterans obtain earned benefits, transportation to and from hospitals, relief from disasters, and educating the public about disabled veterans’ issues.

“The Harley-Davidson Foundation is helping DAV bring benefits, education, and counseling into the communities of our veterans through the DAV Mobile Service Office. The DAV MSO program is available free of charge to all veterans and their families and is staffed by highly trained professional counselors who are skilled experts in developing and prosecuting veterans’ claims.”
