County veterans service agency a real asset

Washington County is most fortunate to have an agency designed to meet the many and diverse needs of area veterans. That being the Washington County Veterans Service.

It is not an overly familiar agency nor large in size, but its value is immeasurable. They provide assistance in helping veterans to become aware of services available to them and obtaining of the same. One of the most important services provided is the transporting of veterans for needed medical care in places like Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Chillicothe and many other locations in Ohio and other states.

Without these services, veterans’ abilities to reach these areas would be difficult, if not impossible. These services are accomplished with a modest budget, and a small staff who are veterans themselves.

Along with several volunteer drivers, I would especially like to thank the staff of Roy Ash, Tom Kukulka, Chad Wright, Karen Erb and last but not least, Don Young.

God bless.
