XENIA — Greene County Veterans’ Services (GCVS) is partnering with Dayton Vet Center to bring additional resources to local veterans and their families.

Dayton Vet Center’s van will park outside the GCVS office at 571 Ledbetter Road in Xenia from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. once a month on Wednesdays: March 18, April 1, May 6, June 3, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2.

According to Timothy Espich, executive director of GCVS, staff will help vets with a range of services, including assistance with readjustment problems related to the military to civilian transition, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma (MST), hostile environments and bereavement.

“This partnership provides local access to key resources to assist the veterans of Greene County,” Espich said.

The van made its first visit last week, with seven people stopping in.

Espich said all veterans, regardless of where they live, are welcome to drop by. No appointment is needed.
