The Veteran's Administration Mobile Vet Center is scheduled to visit locations in Thurston, Mason, and Lewis soon.
The VA uses Mobile Outreach Teams as a way to increase access to counseling services for veterans and their families in rural and underserved communities.
If you are a veteran or active duty service member who has served in a combat zone in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, or Afghanistan, you may be eligible for free counseling.
Veterans can make an appointment by calling 253-565-7038, but walk-ins are also welcome.
