Dear Editor:

The Carroll County Veterans Assistance Commission (VAC) moved to our new office, located at 17612 E. Benton St. in Mount Carroll, on Oct. 3.

We are joining the Carroll County Senior Center and the Carroll County Transit Authority at the new Carroll County Community Center.

Our P.O. Box is 126. Our new phone numbers are: Superintendent, 815-906-0133; Administrative Assistant, 815-906-0134. Our fax number is 815-906-0135.

Since we are a government office, we and all visitors to our office are required to wear a mask while in the office. I know this can be a divisive issue, but we ask for your understanding that some of our veterans are already ill when they come in and we want to protect them.

We look forward to serving our fellow veterans in our new office.

Wayne Leonard

VAC Superintendent
