Veterans benefits class

Many veterans know about the basic health care and education benefits available to them through the Department of Veterans Affairs: Tricare and the GI Bill. While these benefits alone are substantial, numerous other programs help provide more benefits to veterans and their families. Even within the health care and education programs are little-known benefits to improve the lives of veterans and help ease the financial burden of medical care or other expenses. The veterans benefits class takes place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Feb. 18, at the CMC Glenwood Center, 1402 Blake Ave. There is a $10 requested donation for materials. Students can register by phone (970-945-7486), in person, or online at
