The Louisiana Department of Veterans will be conducting an invaluable Training Conference for newly hired Veterans Assistance Counselors and Paralegals from Oct. 16 – Nov. 3 in Carviile, La.

The Southwest Region will have 6 of their new VAC’s out during this training period and several Parish Service Offices will be operating less days than normal.

We anticipate that, after some in-house training, all of our offices will be operating on their normal schedules by Nov. 20.
