GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee Senator Bob Corker is sponsoring an event Friday in Gallatin designed to connect military veterans and their family with needed services.

"Rally Point" will be one-stop shopping for Tennessee vets hoping to access services like VA claims assistance, vocational rehabilitation, education, employment help, mental health services, and home and business loans.

The event takes place Friday beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Gallatin Civic Center.  Corker spokesperson Laura Herzog says the event is free and open to all Tennessee veterans and their families.

“This is actually the fourth Rally Point event that we’ve held. Over a thousand Tennesseans have attended similar events in Knoxville, Cookeville and Jackson. We’ve really received great feedback.”

Veterans with questions about the event should call Senator Corker’s Nashville office at 615-279-8125, or visit corker.senate.gov.
