The Veterans Administration-Obion County veterans’ van makes scheduled trips to the VA Medical centers in Memphis and Marion, Ill., each week. Veterans who request a ride should call the Veterans Service Office at 885-2781 and schedule the trip. The van goes to VAMC Marion on Mondays and Wednesdays and to VAMC Memphis on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
It is best to schedule appointments between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The van is parked at the Eddie Cox Senior Center at 622 South Depot St. in Union City and departs from there for the trips.
Since the van was purchased by Obion County and expenses are paid by the VA, veterans who ride will not receive travel pay.
