FREE Benefits Fair in D/FW by VLB & Texas Veterans Commission

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Kristen Correa Real Estate & Reedy Creek Realty Services 0514644

This weekend as I spent time in the DFW airport and Birmingham airport, I couldn't help but notice a certain distinguished presence. No, I'm not talking about the professionally dry cleaned navy blue uniformed American Airlines employees frustrated over yet another bankrupt day in paradise (or wherever they are flying) although I am sympathetic towards them, because, to be honest, most of the pilots and mechanics (and many other transporation related occupations) probably fall into the category I am about to post about, anyway... a whole other sort of "navy" blue or army green stood at every terminal. I am talking about the honor of the presence of so many of our servicemen and women returning home.

And I like it.

Safe and sound at my home with my garden stake American flag, I checked the mail after being gone only a few days. In the mail is a large postcard from the VLB, the Texas Veterans Land Board. A FREE Benefits Fair is brought to the DFW area by the VLB & Texas Veterans Commission. It is being held:


10 am to 1 pm - Come and Go

Tarrant County College Ballroom

2100 Southeast Parkway

Arlington, TX 76018

The purpose of the FREE event is to allow these veterans to learn more about...

  • Land Loans
  • Home Improvement Loans
  • State Veterans Homes
  • State Veterans Cemeteries
  • Employment Benefits
  • Disability & Pension Claims
  • Education Benefits


I am not a Veteran myself, so I was not sure at first why the VLB mailed it to my address. I thought it may be in the wrong box. So I looked. And then I remembered who I bought my house from. A pilot. A man who is my friend's dad from high school. I assume now that he is also a veteran since it was mailed to his name, addressed to my address (6 years post move). So... here is my announcement for those veterans who may not have received their own mail this week (6 years after you moved).

Veterans, it looks like a  really nice event with plenty of servicemen and women there to answer questions you may have about the benefits you've earned. Right now, when the interest rates are lower than they have ever been and you guys and gals are coming home in volumes, and you look so young, like you may be first time home buyers, this  event is especially good timing for you.

If you can't attend Saturday the 24th, you can call 1-800-252-VETS or visit the site online at

p.s. You may want to double-check that you registered your new address with the VA and VLB.

p.s.s. I'm proud of you and it would be an honor if you asked for my help when you buy a home in the DFW area.
