VA outreach program in Wilkesboro Wednesday
Published 12:00 am Monday, July 25, 2011
The rural health program from the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury will provide VA services in the Wilkesboro Civic Center, 1241 School St., Wilkesboro, on Wednesday, July 27, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The team will provide former and current military members education and assistance on registration and health care concerns. Former military members who are not currently enrolled for VA health care benefits will need to bring a copy of their DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, to attach to their application for VA health care benefits. Please bring a copy, not the original DD Form 214. If you have lost your DD Form 214, you can request a copy from http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/; VA personnel will assist in completing enrollment applications, requesting DD Form 214s, and initiating MyHealtheVet online services.
