The Arizona Department of Veterans' Services (ADVS) is opening a new office in Show Low.
The office is located at Show Low Job Service, 2500 East Cooley Street, Suite 410. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Appointments are encouraged; however, walk-ins are welcome.
Veterans Benefits Counselor (and former Army helicopter pilot) Pam Rodriguez is on hand to provide information, counsel and assistance to honorably discharged veterans, their dependents and survivors.
"I am here to answer any questions about federal or state benefits for veterans," Rodriguez said. She also makes visits to homebound and hospitalized veterans, and is available to speak at veterans' service organizations.
The opening of the Show Low office is a part of the ADVS ongoing effort to ensure that no Arizona veteran is more than a one-hour drive to a Veterans Benefits Counselor.
