Primarily, the Post
Service Officers (PSO) help our post members receive information and
assistance about veteran's benefits. We are not an accredited
representative of the American Legion or the Veterans Administration
(VA) and cannot file claims, but we are our Post's contact for information.
Post 318 Service Officers are available at the
Post Canteen on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 to 4:00 PM to
assist our members and other veterans.
First we do what we can
to help solve the problem ourselves. Second we try to make sure the
person gets help from sources available in the local community.
Every case is
different and the benefits, rules and laws are always changing and
we strive to get veterans to the right people to help them obtain
benefits they are entitled too.
We also assist immediate family members of deceased veterans
inquiring about possible benefits available to them and people that
need help in obtaining Discharge Certificate for departed family
members so they can become members of the Post's Auxiliary or Son's
If you, or you know of someone that needs assistance, see us
at the Post. We would be happy to assist you!
