VA’s Mobile Vet Center provides:

  • Grief and healing services
  • Individual, group, and family readjustment counseling to Veterans, Servicemembers and their families
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder treatment and help with other related problems that affect functioning within the family, work, school or other areas of everyday life
  • Benefits referral services

VA operates the RV-style mobile centers nationwide, working to enhance all three primary functions of outreach, direct service delivery and referral. The largest benefit of the MVC is its ability to take services directly to Veterans who may otherwise have a difficult or near impossible time reaching a permanent center.

VA staff respect the privacy of all clients, and hold information in the strictest confidence. Veterans, Servicemembers, families and VA employees must provide written consent before any information provided can be communicated to any other person or agency. The only exception to this policy is to avert a crisis, harm to self or harm others.

    That means those vets are at least 60 plus in age, aren’t many alive to receive those $88.1 million dollars. So what happens to all that money that’s left?
