Mobile Vet Center provides readjustment counseling for veterans


Menomonie (WQOW) – The Department of Veterans Affairs is driving resources to veterans across the country. On Wednesday, the bus made a stop at UW-Stout in Menomonie.

The Mobile Vet Center provides veterans a review of available benefits. It also offers health care information and counseling to help veterans readjust to community living. The therapists providing help are former service members. They said often combat veterans struggle post-deployment. These veterans may have symptoms like anxiety, irritability, or trouble sleeping.

VA officials said often in military culture, services members feel pressure to keep quiet about their weaknesses, but the VA wants to open up that conversation.

“What we do is we come out and we begin to talk about these symptoms common with military service, and then we help them kind of process through how to manage these symptoms so that they can be the best version of themselves,” said Bradley Foss of the VA Medical Center in Minneapolis, MN.

The Mobile Vet Center will continue bringing resources to the road, but, if you missed the bus, you can find more information on the VA’s website.

Weather Outlook: Still slippery tonight, sunshine returns tomorrow

Drizzle picked back up this afternoon, and much like yesterday froze to untreated surfaces. The good news is the salt and sand put down yesterday is still working, and many municipalities were out again putting down more today. Still, any small stretch of even main roads where salt and/or sand have washed away from cars driving over it could quickly develop slippery spots from this very thin layer of ice
