Veterans must utilize mobile clinic


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — As you know there is a lot of difference between a hospital and a clinic. The new mobile veteran’s clinic does not take the place of a hospital, but we would like to keep the clinic in this area until we can do better. But it is up to the veterans.

Veterans, we can do it with sincerity and dedication by utilizing what has been presented to us in this area. We have a few more months of winter weather and there is nothing fun about driving to Beckley, so now we can receive some service here in Mercer County. I realize that some will have some negative things to say, but some of us will have positive things to say as well.

I would like for us to come together in a positive manner — remember do nothing, get nothing. I would like to say after all of these years, we have done something, and got something.
