GES Mission for the Steubenville VA
Steubenville High School

Our mission on Saturday November 15 will be to the Steubenville High School in the Steubenville OH. This will be a screening event for the Steubenville branch of the VA.  This is one of the few “screening-type” of events that GES is involved with, but because the VA provides exceptional follow-up for the veterans, we are able to refer those in whom a potential problem is discovered to the nearest VA where they will get complete care. We'll be screening about 200 veterans over the course of the morning. This event is fast paced, rewarding and alot of fun. The school is at 420 North 4th St in Steubenville OH.
