Mobile Vet Center Helps With Healthcare Sign Ups

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL - Hunting supplies and healthcare, veterans can find both at the Cabela's Outpost in Kalispell starting Thursday.

Through Sunday, veterans can come out to Cabela's and get signed up for healthcare through the VA Medical Center out of Fort Harrison.

"A, we're going to save them a few bucks, and then B, we've got the peace of mind that they got probably the best healthcare in the state of Montana through us," said Todd Dunlap, an enrollment coordinator.

Dunlap says only Great Falls beats the Flathead Valley for most vets per capita, because of the air force base.

Today, they've already met about a dozen vets and signed three up for medical benefits. The mobile vet center is out now, where they can not only enroll vets in the VA Montana Healthcare System, but also refer vets to providers.

They're planning on being busy.

"We're hoping to see several hundred," estimated Dunlap, "I think Saturday as we were just talking with Jessica, I think Saturday is going to be huge."

"It's a way that we can say thank you to show our appreciation and support to all of our hometown heroes," said Jessica Godderz, a spokeswoman for Cabela's.

All you need to bring is your discharge papers, and, if you think about it, a can of food. Cabela's has set up some bins for donations to the Veteran's Food Pantry.

While all that's going on, Cabela's is giving all police, EMS workers, firefighters, vets, and active duty military and reserves the employee discount.
