OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – Volunteers with the Vet Center reached out to community members today.
“We’ve already had a really good turnout last week,” said volunteer Jim Murdock. “There’s been people coming by already this morning before the truck got here.”
The group set up in the Church of the Nazarene parking lot to encourage veterans to get involved with the center. Although the VA Hospital can help with many things, the Vet Center offers several counseling services to veterans and family members.
“The Vet Center saved my life,” said Alan Keathley, another volunteer. “No questions asked, I walked in the vet center and I didn’t have to have an appointment. They never asked to see my I.D. or anything. I walked straight in and got to meet a counselor straight off at the Vet Center.”
The mobile Vet Center will be at the church every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
