Hawaii veterans received a helping hand on Tuesday.
Veterans Outreach Day was held at Aala Park.
VA specialists, social workers, and soldiers gathered to provide services including medical and mental health screenings, information on veteran benefits, enrollment services, and assistance with claims for homeless veterans.
“We want to take care of the homeless vets, but the first part of taking care of them is verifying their eligibility and then once we do that, just giving them a choice, so when they are ready, it’s available,” Community and Veterans Resource Coordinator Jay King said.
The soldiers who participated on Tuesday are part of Pacific Army Week, which celebrates the Army’s 238th birthday.
