YOUNTVILLE, Calif. – Assemblymember Mariko Yamada (D-Davis) will host a free forum on benefits earned from military service on Saturday, July 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in Grant Hall at the California Veterans Home, 100 California Drive, Yountville.
“There are a variety of benefits available for eligible veterans, including men and women, and sometimes extending to those who have served outside of combat," Yamada said. “This event is open to both active duty military and veterans, including those recently separated from service, and their family members."
Assemblymember Yamada has been a member of the Assembly Committee on Veterans Affairs for five years and was recently honored as the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of California Legislator of the Year.
This will be the fifth veterans service forum Yamada has hosted around her District since 2010, and the first one in Napa.
The event will include presentations from representatives of the California and US Department of Veterans Affairs, the Social Security Administration, Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, local veterans groups and other agencies.
Representatives from these departments and organizations will also be available throughout the day to provide resources and information to veterans and their families.
Caseworkers will also be available to assist veterans with service-related questions or problems. Those planning to check their eligibility or apply for benefits must bring their DD214 or Certificate of Discharge.
