JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A group of people are traveling throughout Northeast Arkansas to make sure veteran's are getting the benefits they're entitled to. Members of the Disabled American Veterans organization has rolled out there mobile van and are on the road.

Carl Mosby is a member of the Disabled American Veterans and spends his time helping others. Mosby says the DAV van is an important service they provide. "We're assisting people that have claims, that have been turned down and we're helping them re apply or we're trying get their claims initiated."

Mosby says they often find our veteran's are unaware of what benefits they should be receiving so they often never even apply. "We have so many, many Americans that went to war and they really don't understand their benefits, they don't know what to do and some of them are too self conscious about going and asking."

Not only do members of the DAV help our veteran's, they often help their spouses. "We had one lady up here whose husband had died and she needed assistance on getting the forms filled out so she could get what she was entitled to."

Mosby says the DAV provides services for veterans throughout Northeast Arkansas. "This van is for all the counties around here. Jonesboro, Paragould, anyone in Northeast Arkansas."

Mosby says the biggest step is to come out. "We encourage anyone if you have something wrong with you to come in and sit down with us and start the paperwork."

You don't have to make an appointment, just show up and someone will start trying to help you.

The DAV mobile van will be in Pocahontas at the Randolph County Courthouse on Wednesday, at the VFW Hall in Newport on the 12th and at the Carmichael Community Center in Searcy on the 13th.

If you have any problems you can contact Carl Mosby at the DAV at 870-935-6036, or you can log onto their website.
