Mobile VA office in Columbus today

Veterans needing help with claims or other services can get assistance from a mobile Veterans Administration office until 6 p.m. today at Columbus' 1000 Victory Drive veterans center, the building that once served as the Old Welcome Center on Victory Drive at Lumpkin Boulevard.

Chaplain George Roffe said the mobile office is from Decatur and has not visited Columbus since 2005. Veterans needing more information can reach him at 706-596-9510.

"We're taking information on claims and helping these people get the benefits that they have coming to them," Roffe. "Some of them may have questions that they don't know the answers to, so we're here to supply that."
