Free testing for our area veterans will be available on the first two Saturdays of this August.

The Overton Brooks VA Medical Center (OBVAMC), in coordination

COVID-19 testing at the Texarkana Veterans Clinic. Testing dates are Aug. 1 and Aug.
8, from 8 a.m.-noon. The clinic is located at 910 Realtor Avenue, Texarkana, Arkansas,
The Shreveport VA hospital and the ADVA join the nation to stop the spread of the
virus. The more Veterans know about their infection status, the more positive action we
all take to ending this pandemic.
Eligible Veterans in the Texarkana area are urged to get tested without leaving the
comfort of their vehicles. The testing is free—Aug. 1 and Aug. 8, from 8 a.m.-noon, at
