On June 28, 2012 the VA Rural Medical Outreach Clinic visited Copperopolis offering medical examinations, consultations, referrals and prescription refills.
This is the second visit from the rural medical outreach clinic. In 2011, the forming VFW Post (now proudly Post 12118) located and invited the van to visit Copper. Due to the high number of aid to vets at that time, the van has placed Copper on a six to eight month visiting schedule.
This particular visit was able to reach out to a number of veterans that had not been "in the system." Which meant they had not received benefits deserving of their status as a veteran.
There were also Veteran Service Officers on hand to assist veterans with
benefits, claims and updating of information. Area 12 Agency on aging
was present offering valuable advice as were representatives from other
companies that offered discounts and promotions for veterans., such as
phones for the hearing impaired and exercise balls for those with
limited hand use.
