Saturday events benefit veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs will bring its mobile outreach clinic to King George County on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The clinic will be at American Legion Post 89, at 10021 Dahlgren Road.

Eligible veterans will be scheduled for appointments to complete their initial physical exams. An enrollment specialist will be on hand to assist new veterans with the process. Participants should bring their DD-214 and a photo identification. More information is available by calling 804/675-5000, ext. 3382.

Also on Saturday, Post 89 will host its fifth annual barbecue and bike rally from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $10 per person, but $5 for first responders, including police, fire and rescue workers and active-duty military. Music will be provided by Kicking Mules and Made in the USA Band.

The menu will include pork barbecue, cole slaw, sides and desserts.

Proceeds will benefit the Virginia Wounded Warrior program. For more information, contact the post at 540/775-3671.
