LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- VA Centers across the country, including the one right here in Louisville, are taking a stand to help meet the needs of veterans.

The Robley Rex VA is participating in Access Stand Down. The mission is to reach out to area veterans and identify which ones have the strongest needs. 

Teams of clinical leaders, administrators and volunteers were on site Saturday to make sure veterans' needs are met in a timely matter.

"We are paying attention to what the veterans need and we adjust as we need to," said Martin Traxler, director of the Robley Rex VA Medical Center. 

"So we don't ask the veterans to adjust to our system in the way we provide services ... we're adjusting our system to what the veterans need."

The center also holds specialty clinics every week to focus on different issues like dermatology, mental health or cardiology.
