Mobile veterans center coming to Lummi Reservation

Veterans can access health services and other benefits at the Mobile Medical Unit next week at the Silver Reef Casino, 4876 Haxton Way.

All veterans may use the walk-in services being provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Puget Sound Health Care System.

Services will be provided 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17, through Thursday, Nov. 20, and 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Nov. 21.

Veterans can get primary care/wellness services, including flu shots; help for poor eyesight; and eligibility/enrollment services (bring DD Form 214).

Such mobile units are an effort to reach out to veterans in rural and under-served communities. And it’s an opportunity for the Veterans Health Administration to partner with American Indian tribes to serve both tribal and non-tribal veterans, according to a Department of Veterans Affairs news release.
