SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The National Association of Black Veterans‘ Springfield chapter opened its Mason Square office at 787 State Street. Their mission is to provide help to any western Massachusetts veterans who’ve had difficulty navigating the system.
Wes Pinkney of NABVETS told 22News, “You come in, you file your claim, you can manage your claim, and you can check the status of your claim.”
Pinkney said the veterans group helps vets get the information they need, but can’t access when going through official channels.
