The Beckley VA Medical Center is holding an event called the PACT Act Vet Fest to assist service members with their benefits.

The event will allow service members, veterans and their families to enroll in VA health care, learn about VA benefits and file a VA claim.

The PACT Act expands health care for veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange and other toxic substances. Attendees will have the opportunity to be screened for service-connected toxic exposures.

The Huntington Regional Office PACT Act Claims Clinic will provide claims processing services on-site. Individuals will be able to receive guidance on benefits. There is no appointment necessary.

The PACT Act VetFest will be on Tuesday, July 25 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There will also be food, games and prizes to win for the whole family.
