Information for Veterans at SUNY Canton, March 23

SUNY Canton is sponsoring an informational session with the Veteran’s Administration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 23, in the Veteran’s Association Lounge, Cook Hall Room 116.

“We set up this informational session to help continue the College’s commitment to the Military community, both on campus and in the greater North Country Region,” said Robert Edwards, Professor of Criminal and faculty liaison to the SUNY Canton Veteran’s Association. “Counselors will be available to help veterans and dependents of veterans answer questions about their GI Bill eligibility and disability benefits.”

Representatives from the Syracuse VA Medical Center, St. Lawrence County Veterans Service Office, New York State Division of Veterans Affairs, and Watertown Veterans Center will be available during the day. Their goal is to provide information about benefits, programs, and services offered exclusively veterans and their families including health care, home loans, property taxes, life insurance, and more. Attendants who wish to enroll in VA Health Care are asked to bring a copy of their DD214, otherwise known as discharge papers.

The informational session is free and open to all North Country veterans. For more information, contact Edwards at, or call 315.386.7666.
