IRON MOUNTAIN – The VA Vet Center will be holding an open house at the Copper Country Mall on Thursday, December 1, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET. The Mall is located at 47420 Highway M-26 in Houghton. The Escanaba-based Vet Center recently added staff in the Houghton/Hancock area to serve Veterans in the Copper Country and western UP.
Michelle Kovachich now provides a full time presence for the Vet Center in the western UP.
“As a Combat Vet myself and Copper Country native, I understand the pressures of readjustment to civilian life and I’m honored to be of service to the Western Upper Peninsula,” said Kovachich. “Veterans and their families have made many sacrifices and thankfully the Vet Center has a full-time presence to provide care and assistance.”
The Vet Center welcomes Veterans, their families, and the general public to come for fellowship, snacks, refreshments, and information on how the Vet Center serves Veterans.
The Vet Center offers free readjustment counseling services for combat Veterans of all era’s and their family members, along with any service members who experienced military sexual trauma. The Vet Center also provides bereavement services and offers referral to the VA and other local agencies to any veteran in need of services.
Any questions can be directed to the Vet Center at (906) 233-0244.
