The New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS) will host a live Facebook discussion about the agency’s new Rural Veterans Transportation Program tomorrow (Tuesday, February 23) at 10:30am on the DVS Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nmdvshealthcare2015/.
DVS Healthcare Division Director Jemia Warner will have information about this DVS effort to provide free round-trip transportation for veterans in Cibola, Colfax, Guadalupe, and Socorro counties to any VA or VA-approved non-VA medical appointments.
This is the first phase of the program’s launch. Director Warner will provide information about how to access the program, and will also discuss future expansion to other rural counties in the state.
