The Veterans Outreach Expo will take place in the Courtyard of the John and Grace Allen Building (ALN) from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on November 7th.  The Expo is a one stop shop for all things VA! No need to travel to the VA Hospital or VA Regional Office in St. Petersburg; they are coming to YOU! Here are just a few reasons to come to the Veterans Resource Showcase:

- You may instantly enroll for VA Health Benefits! If you are unsure of your eligibility status, you can talk with a VA Eligibility Specialist who will be able to determine your eligibility.

- Did you know there is Enhanced Eligibility for Combat Veterans? Eligible combat Veterans will have free medical care and medications for any condition that may be related to their service in theater. Meet with an OIF/OEF/OND VA Representative to find out if you are eligible.
