Additionally, veterans learned about state and federal benefits they have earned through their service.
"I don’t believe a lot of veterans know that when they get [discharged], there is an opportunity to obtain your citizenship and what we’re trying to do at CalVet is to lay down that pathway, that roadmap to show them … these are the steps to do that,” Elizabeth Perez, deputy secretary, California Department of Veterans Affairs, told NBC 7.
