TEAYS VALLEY, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance has opened a new Putnam County office in Teays Valley.

The Huntington Herald-Dispatch reports the office was officially opened Monday. An agency release says the new office is meant to increase area veterans’ access to assistance and improve service quality. The agency helps veterans with the receipt of state and federal benefits such as education and medical assistance.

Agency Secretary Dennis Davis says this is the third new office opened as part of the agency’s effort to increase service availability. The agency has 16 field and claims offices, as well as dozens of community work stations. An agency worker at the new location, Sherry Barker-Jackson, says the office has seen up to 30 people per day since its opening.
