For Immediate Release

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. – Rockdale County is proud to announce the return of the Veteran Transportation Program via the specially designed vehicle called the “Eagle”. This program assists honorably discharged Rockdale County veterans of any age with trips to the Veterans Hospital in Decatur and the VA clinics in Stockbridge and Covington.

Veterans may be picked up for the trip at either their home, the Veterans Affairs office, or at Rockdale Senior Services. The Veteran Transportation Program offers additional personnel to assist the veteran in and out of their appointments along with open spots for caregivers to attend the appointment with their loved one. Veterans must register for the transportation program before scheduling medical appointments. Transportation hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Veterans are requested to schedule medical appointments falling within reasonable transportation hours.

To register for this program, please contact the Rockdale Senior Services Transportation Manager at 770-278-7284. Once registered, book a ride by calling 770-278-7284. Our Veterans served us, and now we want to serve them.
