It is our duty and our honor to help them with their VA benefits,” Little Sammie Quillin, executive director of the Rock VA regional office, said in a press release.

“While we have resumed hosting in-person community outreach events, we will continue to offer these virtual claims clinics as a way for veterans to reach us after regular business hours,” Quillin said.

During the upcoming Virtual Claims Clinic, staff members from the Little Rock VA regional office will be available to answer questions about existing VA benefit claims and how to file a new one.

“We have such a diverse population outside of the metropolitan areas of the state and we need to work even harder to reach those who are in our rural areas and those who cannot reach us by other means,” said Quillin.
