STONE MOUNTAIN Veterans can now get help at Antioch AME’s Veterans Information Referral Office in Stone Mountain.
The church is kicking off its Veterans Day weekend on Nov. 9 with the launch of a new community service for veterans and their families. It takes place from 10 a.m. to noon.
The national observance is Nov. 11.
Antioch is partnering with Veterans Affairs for the program.
Church representative Vonshurii S. Wrighten said many veterans returning from deployment have difficulty navigating the bureaucracy to get the assistance they need.
“We will assist veterans and their families by getting them connected to benefits and services that are available to them,” she said.
The church is at 765 S. Hairston Road. For more information, call 404-299-3388.
