SCRANTON -- Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor was in Scranton Wednesday night introducing his new state-wide task force for veterans.

Mike Stack says he created the task force to improve the lives of veterans who need help with things like housing, employment, and mental health.

Local veterans at American Legion Post 665 on Olyphant Avenue in Scranton say they're grateful for the help.

"His program, I believe will be very beneficial to veterans across the state because it’s giving us an opportunity to voice our concerns, and he's giving the ear that we can speak to," said Richard Craig, Navy veteran. "Knowing that somebody cares, that's huge. Just knowing somebody cares about them even though they're going through a rough time in their lives."

Lieutenant Governor Stack is an Army veteran himself.
