Supermarket of Veterans Benefits

The City of Savannah is going to be the site for a huge veterans event expected to benefit everyone who attends. Mayor Otis Johnson proclaimed December 7 "Supermarket of Veterans Benefits Day." The National Guard Armory will become the location for veterans to find out about benefits they may not be receiving, how to get military medals and records and much more.

Last time it was held in Savannah was in 1992 and more than 4,000 people attended. Once again this year, everyone in our area is invited.

"Anywhere in Georgia for that matter--people come long distances from Georgia or from South Carolina--they are welcome so we can assist them with these benefits they may be entitled to," said Commissioner Pete Wheeler of the Georgia Department of Veterans Services.

The Supermarket of Veterans Benefits will take place on December 7 at the National Guard Armory on Eisenhower Drive from 10am to 3pm.
