Denham Announces Arrival of Veteran Transport Vans to Modesto
WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) is proud to announce the arrival of two Veteran Transport Vans for use at the VA Modesto Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). The vans will allow our area veterans additional support in meeting their transportation needs. They provide transportation to and from their medical appointments at the Modesto VA Clinic on Oakdale Road and roundtrip access to additional VA Palo Alto Healthcare Systems Facilities. Rep. Denham, a veteran himself who serves on the House Veterans’ Committee, made Valley transportation a top priority to meet the needs of his veteran constituents.
Local veterans and community leaders worked closely with the VA Palo Alto Volunteer Services and Rep. Denham in an effort to assist veterans who have special needs or transportation restrictions, often not able to travel to their medical appointments on their own.
“Meeting the needs of our veterans who have faithfully served our nation is, and always will be, one of my top priorities," said Rep. Denham. "I believe this program will greatly assist veterans who have selflessly served our country."
Rep. Denham, an Air Force veteran and the only member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee from the Valley, appreciates the hard work, patience and diligent efforts of community members who worked to make this a success.
