Library hosting mobile medical clinic for veterans on Thursday

Special outreach for Vietnam, Middle East vets as new benefits are available

The city and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Palo Alto Health Care system are teaming up with Veterans Connect @ the Library to offer free examinations, resources, consultations and referrals to military veterans this week.

No appointment is necessary for the VA Mobile Medical event, scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Pleasanton Public Library, 400 Old Bernal Ave.

Medical team and enrollment specialists will also be on hand to help Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans learn more about new benefits available to them.

Veterans who are not currently in the VA system should bring an extra copy of their DD-214 discharge papers to attach to their enrollment form, as well as a list of medications for the doctor to review.

For more information, contact Julie Eseltine at the library at jeseltine@cityofpleasantonca.gov or call 931-3400, ext. 4.
