Rutledge Provides Resources to ADVA to Help Open Veteran Service Offices Across State
November 10, 2015
FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today joined the Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs (ADVA) in partnership with the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services for a ribbon cutting of the District 2 Veteran Service Office in Fayetteville. In addition to North Little Rock and Fayetteville, ADVA will establish district offices in Forrest City, Fort Smith, Hope, Jonesboro, Monticello, Mountain Home and Russellville. The Attorney General’s office has committed to contributing $170,000 to assist ADVA with opening the offices.
“I am proud to join with ADVA Director Matt Snead and so many others who stand ready to empower and assist our veterans,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “The opening of the Veteran Service Office in Fayetteville, as well as the others planned across the State, will have a direct impact on Arkansas’s more than 250,000 veterans in providing them much-needed resources and services. ADVA is taking a proactive approach to reach veterans statewide, not just those in central Arkansas, and their efforts should be commended.”
The District 2 Veterans Service Office is located at the Department of Workforce Services at 2143 West Martin Luther King Blvd. in Fayetteville.
