The Smith County Veteran Services Office can now add
counseling to the services it provides veterans.
Smith County Veteran Services Officer Mike Roark and
Assistant Veteran Services Officers Andrea Odom and Colt Webb were recently
certified as Certified Peer Specialists. After undergoing a 40-hour training
course and passing a required test, they are now peer-to-peer counselors.
“This is another level of help we can give veterans in Smith
County,” Roark said.
