So many veterans feel confused about benefits and services they have earned. There’s so much to know…and so many changes from one year to the next. That’s why the nonprofit D-A-V (Disabled American Veterans) offers help. The DAV Mobile Service Office will be at 114 W. Broaddus Avenue, Bowling Green, Virginia, Thursday, August 17, 8 to 3 p.m. to personally provide the best counseling and claim filing assistance available. Like all D-A-V services, help from the Mobile Service Office is free to all veterans and members of their families.

The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic summer blood shortage. In August, regular donors may delay giving as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up. To fully meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks, donations are urgently needed from new and current donors. Those who donated blood earlier this summer may be eligible to donate again. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days, and Power Red cells can be donated every 112 days. As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through August 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard. Appointments can be scheduled by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). To help reduce wait times, donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at The next blood donation opportunity is at the Caroline Family YMCA on August 17 at 17422 Library Boulevard, 12-6 p.m.
