Local Veteran Helped By Watervliet Fire Department

The Watervliet Fire Department was helping an Albany area World War II veteran Thursday morning, but it wasn’t because his home was burning.

They were helping raise money for 89-year-old Joseph Teson because they found out from a story that was seen a few days ago on WNYT, that his benefits were reduced to just six dollars a month.

In the recent story from WNYT, Teson was contacted by the Department Of Veterans Affairs because he was overpaid. It wasn’t just a little bit of an overpayment. They’re claiming it was more than $3,000 dollars.

The members of the Watervliet Fire Department has had a great response from the community, and is continuing to collect for Teson, and is going to match whatever they make in donations.
