Potter County Expands Veterans Services Outreach

Veterans’ Director Coming To Galeton Wednesday

Potter County Office of Veterans Affairs has announced expanded services to meet the needs of the county’s veterans and their families. Leonard Kalkbrenner Jr., director of veterans affairs, is launching a community outreach program.

He will initially set up operations on the first Wednesday of each month, starting July 1, at the Galeton Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall from 11 am to 1 pm. A Roulette visit will likely be added to his schedule beginning in August. Other community visits are also being considered.

“These visits will bring services closer to our veteran population and make it more convenient for many veterans and their families, who will no longer have to travel to Coudersport for appointments,” Kalkbrenner said.

No appointments are necessary for the outreach visits.

Kalkbrenner has been working with the Potter County Board of Commissioners to expand county-provided services, working in conjunction with VA Medical Centers, Pennsylvania CareerLink and other agencies.

“One of the keys to our improving services is to successfully engage the local veterans’ services organizations in our communities to work with the county,” Kalkbrenner said. “We have been contacting American Legion and VFW posts as well as other individuals who are involved in veterans’ services to strengthen this partnership.”

Kalkbrenner is available during regular offices hours in the F. W. Gunzburger County Office Building Mondays and Tuesdays, 9 am to 3 pm, or Wednesdays through Fridays by appointment. His phone number is (814) 274-8290, extension 210; email address is Potter County Today
