Helping Vets in Lee County

Fort Madison, IA – The Board of Supervisors is considering an offer from a county resident who's willing to maintain the Commission of Veterans Affairs offices during the afternoons and/or evenings. Current office hours are 9:00 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday. But Ron McKoon of Fort Madison says the office needs to be open more than 12 hours a week. He's willing to help out free of charge and says he is trained in processing claims for veterans. Supervisors took the offer under advisement. They need to review privacy issues surrounding personal documents and discuss other matters related to the proposal.
