Pleasanton Library will host the VA Palo Alto Mobile Medical Outreach Team and the county Veterans Service Officer (VSO) to facilitate free examinations, consultations, and referrals for veterans. Additional VA resource information will be available. The event will run from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 30. The library is located at 400 Old Bernal Avenue. No appointment is necessary.

Veterans uncertain of their benefits eligibility are encouraged to visit as requirements have changed, and VA health care may complement current medical coverage. VA representatives will provide information or assistance with questions and enrollment for VA care. The Veteran Service Officer will provide benefits counsel and process VSD-001 forms for veterans who wish to apply for the veteran designation on California driver’s licenses or ID cards.

Veterans should bring military discharge papers (Form DD-214) and a list of current medications. For more information or assistance obtaining proof of service documents prior to the event, contact the library’s information desk, 925-931-3400 x4 or jeseltine@cityofpleasantonca.gov.

The City of Pleasanton Library has been a member of Veterans Connect @ the Library, a statewide outreach to Veterans sponsored by the California State Library, since 2013.
