The head of the Mercer County Veterans Assistance Commission wants veterans in Mercer County to know they are here to help those that served this country. Superintendent and retired Sergeant Major George Howard spoke at Aledo Main Street’s Networking at noon.
The office was started in 1953 and travel assistance was started in 1997.
Howard says the Mercer County Veterans Assistance Commission is located on the second floor of the courthouse with no appointments needed. You can also call 582-2714 for assistance.
