Glen Burnie to get VA clinic by the end of the year

Anne Arundel County veterans will no longer have to travel to Baltimore for doctor visits when a Department of Veterans Affairs clinic opens in Glen Burnie by the end of the year.

The site for the clinic has not been determined, said Laura Chapin, spokeswoman for Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, who along with Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes will announce the clinic plans at 10 a.m. today at Arundel Center North in Glen Burnie.

More than 3,600 veterans are expected to use the VA clinic in the first year.
