Veterans Corner 

The Montrose Weekender has stopped its weekly publication which was a primary means of communication to our veterans and their families using the monthly “Veterans Corner” articles. The weekender was sent to over 12,700 homes. In order to help fill this void these monthly articles will now be published once each month in the Susquehanna Independent, and posted each month on the Susquehanna County Veterans Affairs web site at You may also be able to get this information by listening to the broadcasts of the WPEL radio station at 96.5 FM or on WPEL 800 AM which airs a Community Calendar and Announcements at about 7:20 A.M., 12:20 P.M. & 5:30 P.M. each day on the AM station. As always you may call the VA office at (570) 278-5955 for any assistance needed.​
