Local Legion Hall hosts county veterans' services officer April 22

MARYSVILLE — Marysville American Legion Post 178 has gained a resource for local veterans.

On April 22, and the fourth Monday of every month to follow, Jerry Gedack of the Snohomish County Veterans' Assistance Office will be at the Post 178 Legion Hall, located at 119 Cedar Ave., from noon to 4 p.m.

"I've recently received the service officer qualifications for our local Legion, but the county is lending us their own veterans' service officer once a month," said Ken Cage, past commander of Post 178. "The county has experienced people, and one of them volunteered to come here."

Cage encouraged veterans to stop by with whatever veterans' affairs issues they might have, but advised them to bring as much of their veterans' paperwork as they can.

"That'll help shorten the time up that it takes to take care of them," Cage said.
