Legion welcomes Korea vets

The American Legion is inviting Korean War veterans and their spouses to a free informational meeting on veterans benefits at 1 p.m. Monday, at the Modesto Legion Hall, 1001 S. Santa Cruz Ave.

Guest Speaker Sue Scott of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Livermore will talk about the expansion of the VA health clinic on McHenry Avenue, new programs and services for female veterans. Legion officials said Korean War veterans often are underserved or don't know about food and shelter assistance for homeless female veterans.
