Additional support would help VA Service Office assist veterans

I am writing in regard to the wonderful letter by Mr. Ashby Rhame – “Help our veterans, help our VA Service Office.” I could not agree more as a member of American Legion Post 17 here in Camden. I can speak firsthand of the help I have received from my local Post No. 17 and the local VA office with VA Officer Mr. Billy Bell and Mr. Bell’s assistant, Barbara Ray. They have been most helpful to veterans in this county.

With the increase in the number of veterans the VA office helps in getting to and from local VA centers, that need for transportation and the workload on these two people is tremendous. I, too, agree -- as others, I’m sure -- that county council should take a closer look to expand their workplace and provide extra personnel to assist them.

As veterans, we live here, shop here and pay our taxes here. I would hope that our county council would give the VA office some consideration in this matter.
