September 05, 2012

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Area veterans and residents are invited to attend a public meeting at 10 a.m. today in Berkeley County that aims to help veterans navigate the medical services, benefits and health counseling that is available to them.

Staff with U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s office is hosting the meeting, which will be at the Blue Ridge Community and Technical College’s Tech Center at 5550 Winchester Ave., south of Martinsburg, the senator’s office announced.

The session to be held in Room T-04, will include representatives of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance who will deliver presentations and take questions from veterans who attend.

“As governor, and now as a United States Senator, I am strongly committed to honoring our veterans and making sure that they have the best treatment and care in every way possible,” Manchin said in a news release. “The people who sacrifice their lives for the freedoms we enjoy every day deserve the best education, housing, medical care and services our country has to offer. We should thank our service members every day for their patriotism and sacrifice.”
