BENNINGTON - The Mobile Vet Center (like the one pictured here) is headed to American Legion in Bennington VT for a Veterans Welcome Home event for all veterans on Tuesday, March 18, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m..

White River Junction Vermont's Mobile Vet Center (MVC), is one of a fleet of 90 mobile Vet Centers in the United States. The VA's Vet Center Program, travels to Vermont, New Hampshire and New York to reach underserved veterans.

The 29-foot motor coach, with space for confidential counseling, carries Vet Center counselors and outreach workers to provide non-medical readjustment counseling, addressing the social and economic dimensions of post-war needs. This includes counseling for traumatic military-related experiences and family counseling when needed for the veteran's readjustment or assisting federal benefits.

Vet Centers, operated by VA Readjustment Counseling Service, provide high quality non-medical readjustment counseling to combat veterans in an easily accessible, homey and trusting atmosphere.
