Tribe steps up for vets
March 20, 2017
PEMBROKE — The director of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Fayetteville urged veterans Saturday to join in her efforts to establish a veterans treatment court in Robeson County.
Elizabeth Goolsby was a keynote speaker at a Lumbee Tribe-sponsored veterans stand down held at the Pembroke Boys and Girls Club. The stand down provided all veterans with access to information about benefits they may be eligible to receive, as well as the process for obtaining benefits. It also provided special services — including haircuts and confidential counseling — for any veteran who identified themselves as being homeless.
