Oftentimes, it’s a long drive for local veterans to get to a VA Veterans Center, but Veteran Service Officer Brian Foshee has secured a Mobile Vet Center to help accommodate some of the needs of local veterans.

The Mobile Vet Center from the Department of Veterans Affairs will be in Andalusia on Thurs., March 24, 2016.

The rolling center is a 39-foot RV and will be in the southern-most parking lot of Walmart from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Services will be offered to veterans who served in a combat or war zone and include:

• Individual, group and family readjustment counseling to assist service members in making a successful transition from combat to garrison or civilian life;

• Post-traumatic stress disorder treatment and help with other related problems that affect functioning within the family, work, school or other areas of everyday life; and,

• Military sexual trauma counseling for service members of both genders.

These services are also available to family members of combat service members, as well as any combat veteran.

Vet Center staff will also be available to answer questions about benefits already earned by the veteran. If available, Veterans should bring a copy of their DD-214 and a form of identification.
