Charleston, SC — The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center and Columbia VA Regional Office will host a VA open house and claims assistance event at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center on Monday, June 29, 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at located at 109 Bee Street, Charleston, SC. The free event includes a Veteran forum with leadership, on-site enrollment for VA healthcare, information on VA services, and on-site claims assistance from VBA staff.

VA Executive Leadership will be available to discuss Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration and National Cemetery Administration services provided for Veterans at the Ralph H.

VA staff will be available to help attendees with health care related eligibility and enrollment for VA care, VA healthcare services, VA claims questions, and assisting Veterans filing claims for benefits.

Community partners will be in attendance to help kick off a new nationwide initiative – "Summer of Service" – that seeks the help of citizens in the Charleston Area to create and build partnerships to grow the number of individuals and organizations serving Veterans here. The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center is renewing its commitment to Veterans by inviting the community to visit and explore opportunities to serve Veterans during this event.

"We are fortunate to have many community partners collaborating with our facility to help care for our Veterans. As a commitment to honoring America's heroes, we are asking people to come get involved in service to Veterans," said Scott Isaacks, Director of the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center.

As part of VA's Summer of Service, the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center hopes to increase local engagement and welcome members of the community interested in supporting the needs of Veterans. The event will have information on volunteering, collaboration through community partnerships and employment opportunities for medical professionals. The event will also serve to host congressional members and staffs to provide education on the VA benefits available in the area at the Medical Center, Regional Office and National Cemetery.
