Martinsburg VAMC Celebrates Summer of Service
June 11, 2015
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. – A new Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) nationwide initiative – “Summer of Service” – is designed to build upon existing partnerships to grow the number of individuals and organizations serving Veterans in the community.
To celebrate this “Summer of Service” the Martinsburg VA Medical Center (VAMC) will host an open house on June 30, from 1 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 1B-114. This open house will feature volunteer programs and opportunities, medical center information and will include support from the Veterans Benefits Administration, National Cemetery Administration and Veterans Service Organizations. Tours of the medical center will also be provided to those interested.
Outreach will be available to Veterans who need assistance enrolling in VA health care or applying for VA disability benefits. Human resources will be on site to provide information on current employment opportunities and the job application process.
Immediately following the open house, there will be a volunteer orientation to those who are interested in becoming volunteers in room 1B-114. The next volunteer orientation after June 30 will be on July 29.
Over the next few months, the Martinsburg VAMC will celebrate Summer of Service by working closely with congressional partners, Veterans Service Organizations, local community leaders and organizations to identify new and innovative ways to support VA’s commitment to care for those who “have borne the battle” and their families.
