'Vets Helping Vets' event set for Friday, Saturday


WALLA WALLA -- On Friday and Saturday, veterans can join other veterans at the National Guard Armory, 113 S. Colville St., for the fourth annual "Vets Helping Vets" event.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., veterans can get help with learning about filing claims, get enrolled for benefits and learn about what help is available through the new Walla Walla Vet Center.

Walla Walla Community College students will donate haircuts and hand massages, and female veterans can get manicures.

On Friday only, staff from the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial Veterans Affairs Medical Center will vaccinate all eligible veterans for pertussis (whooping cough).

Refreshments will be provided for the event. For more information, call Larry Werst at 525-5200, ext. 26285.
