Who would have ever thought 2021 would have presented the challenges that it has so far? COVID 19 has forced the VA and most others to rethink how they do business. From being totally closed in most cases to doing virtual visits when possible, the VA is just now beginning to schedule exams associated with claims. I know it is frustrating when you are trying to get a claim resolved and you hear nothing for months on end. It will take the VA a while to get caught up but to their credit, they are working outside the box to get claims adjudicated as fast as possible.

Most Veterans organizations have resumed conducting monthly meetings this year. Hopefully, other businesses will start to pick up as soon as possible. I will post updates about these services on our Facebook page. We have restarted our Band of Brothers monthly meetings and would love for you to attend. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at our new office location at 302 North Academy Street at 6:30 pm. All Veterans are welcome for a cup of coffee and fellowship with other Vets.

Our office in now open at full capacity for walks in and appointments without any restrictions.  We only ask that you be respectful of others and their space while out in the museum/waiting area.  Masks are not mandatory but if you feel more comfortable wearing one please do so.  We thank you for your patience and look forward to serving you any way we can.

Will work for treats. Lucy is the newest member of our team. She is a welcome addition to our staff. She is our official greeter and provides therapy by insisting you talk to her and pet her. She also promotes our Veteran pet adoption program here in Lincoln County. If you are a Veteran you can adopt a family member like Lucy at no cost to you through Lincoln County Animal Services. Contact them to find your newest family member.


It takes special talent to work this hard.
