Back in September, representatives of LaHarpe’s Veterans of Foreign Wars post invited area veterans to learn about benefits to which they are entitled, but possibly know nothing about.

Therese Yetzbacher, a VFW member and service officer, had modest expectations.

“I thought if we got 10 people to show up, we’d be lucky,” she said.
