ASTON - Rep. Stephen E. Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) announced today several opportunities for veterans in southeastern Pennsylvania.

“As the majority chairman of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, I want to make local veterans aware of every opportunity and benefit available to them,” said Barrar. “Veterans have made many sacrifices for our nation, and they have earned support services. I encourage veterans to take advantage of these programs.”

On Saturday, March 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum Law Clinic will offer free assistance to veterans to prepare wills, powers of attorney and living wills. Veterans must register by March 20, by emailing VetsLaw@PilotLaw.com or calling (610) 566-0788. The appointments will be held at the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum, located at 12 East State St. in Media.
