As the transition of services continues from the Knoxville VA Campus to Des Moines, VA officials are looking for volunteer drivers to transport veterans to and from their medical appointments. A group of VA and county employees, veteran group members and volunteers met yesterday, hashing out ideas on how to get people interested in the Marion County VA Volunteer Transportation Program. As services and in-patient veterans move to Des Moines, there will still be many veterans in the area who need to use the out-patient services in Des Moines. VA Officials say those interested will bet full training, have meals provided during the week for volunteering, and only have to give what time they can. For more information call Nancy at 828-5355.
