MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Monday, June 21, 2021) – Berkeley County will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new location of the Veterans’ Affairs Office (VA) on Monday, June 28 at 4 p.m. The Berkeley County VA Office is moving to 212 Oakley Plantation Drive in Moncks Corner, the site of the Berkeley County Water and Sanitation building.
The Veterans Affairs Office was previously located in Goose Creek. This new location will provide more space for veterans in a more secure facility. Additionally, there will be a kiosk installed for veterans to check-in upon arrival, which will allow staff to more efficiently serve veterans and their families.
Berkeley County has approximately 22,000-23,000 resident veterans; and there are an estimated 75,000-100,000 veterans across the Tri-County area.
This new Veterans Affairs location will allow office staff to better serve our area veterans, who deserve our utmost respect and support. This facility is more centrally located and features improved technology that will help staff serve Veterans and their families more efficiently. -Johnny Cribb, Berkeley County Supervisor
We are so grateful to County leadership for both realizing our need for a larger site and recognizing the importance of assisting our Veterans. The Berkeley County VA office works with thousands of men and women who served their Country with courage. My staff now has the rewarding opportunity to serve them. This new facility will help strengthen that effort for years to come. –Jan Helton, Berkeley County Veterans Affairs Director
