May He Rest in Peace

“I can't say enough good things about working with Libby. She was always pleasant and extremely helpful with all of my questions and concerns. She was genuinely interested in my case and the level of care and attention she gave me, made me feel like she was really in my corner. Libby and the rest of the team have helped me tremendously with my benefits and really have been instrumental in helping me with so much. I am forever grateful for the kindness and respect shown to me from the Veterans Service Commission. Thank you so much!"

"If a situation ever comes up in my life and I need help with a health problem that the VA is handling. Maybe I need some information, or a ride to a medical appointment. All I have to do is call the Ashtabula Veterans Service Commission and PROBLEM SOLVED!"

Robert D. Harvey
U.S. Navy (Retired) Veteran
Roaming Shores, OH

"Extraordinary is the word that comes to mind when I think of the Ashtabula County Veterans Service Commission.  The care and concern far exceeded any found in many other previous governmental encounters.   My contact, Ben, was always courteous and professional and thoroughly explained program details and requirements.  With patience and understanding, he ushered me through the sometimes confusing and frustrating maze of paperwork required for a VA claim. His thorough knowledge of the "system" and requirements were obvious.  I am truly grateful that there are veterans who continue to serve fellow veterans.  Well done! Hooah!"

I would like to give a testimonial about the Veterans Service Commission in Ashtabula, Ohio. The people there are so very pleasant. I met my personal agent, Aimee Borcicky and she was so very nice and was always friendly and never tired of listening to my concerns. Her being a wonderful Christian was a plus for me. She helped me get things I didn’t know about. Thank you Aimee and friends at the Veterans Service Commission in Ashtabula, Ohio! Many blessings to all of you.

My experience with the Ashtabula VSC has been outstanding! My VSO, Libby Jenkins helped me through an uncomfortable and complicated process. She kept me informed of everything happening in my case, listened and kept me grounded when I was frustrated, and was an invaluable support from day one. I really appreciate everything she did for me, and love seeing the many posts on your Facebook page showing all the support and information your office gives to other veterans. Deeply appreciate all the great work the Ashtabula county office does!
