Mobile Vet Center in Charleston area to help Veterans

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - The Mobile Vet Center is back in the Charleston area Wednesday to inform Veterans of benefits and jobs available to them.

The Department of Veteran Affairs, SC Department of Employment and Workforce, and Ralph H. Johnson VAMC partnered to host the informational briefing Wednesday in North Charleston.

The Mobile Vet Center was at SC Works Trident Charleston on Hanahan Road in North Charleston from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"It's very important to assist the veterans, to have a smooth transition off of active duty to civilian life," said adjustment counselor technician, Anthony Hodges. "We, at the Vet Center, cover the whole state of South Carolina, reaching out to combat Veterans all over the State."

The Center brings counselors and outreach workers to rural areas to provide a variety of services to Veterans from readjustment counseling for Active-Duty, National Guard and Reserve service members to post-deployment health reassessments for returning combat members.

Counselors can also help Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and family or marriage related issues, while providing resources like VA benefits information and suicide prevention referrals.
