THORNDIKE — Tyler Hadyniak, a Mount View High School graduate and now an attorney specializing in veterans’ benefits, will teach a course for veterans on Thursday, March 24, 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the high school.

According to Regional School Unit 3 Adult and Community Education, the one-time course will be a basic, introductory guide to veterans’ benefits law. Hadyniak will walk participants through the VA benefits process, and explain what an applicant needs to prove and how to do it. By the end of the class, the course description says, participants will be able to explain to veterans, their friends, and family, what is required to get compensation through the VA.

Hadyniak, who practices law with the firm of Mailloux and Marden in Belfast, is “skilled in navigating the VA benefits system and helping veterans get disability benefits for medical conditions they think are related to service,” according to the course description. His legal career began in veterans law, and he is the only veterans law practitioner in Waldo and Knox counties, and one of only a few north of Portland.

The registration fee is $5. For more information, or to register, contact RSU 3 Adult Education at 568-3426 or
