SUBJECT: Marietta Vet Center Grand Opening Invitation Letter

On behalf of the Marietta Vet Center Team, you and your guest(s) are cordially invited to attend
the Grand Opening Ceremony of the Marietta Vet Center.

The Vet Center, Readjustment Counseling Service (RCS) started in 1979 with a proud history of
veterans providing readjustment support to veterans. Today, Vet Centers employ, social workers,
psychologists, outreach specialists and administrators; many who are combat veterans
themselves to assist veterans, family members and their significant others with the transition
from war back to their communities.

The center is in an excellent location (40 Dodd Street, Suite 700, Marietta GA 30060)
approximately 25 minutes northwest of the Atlanta VA Medical Center. It is also near a well
known and easily identifiable landmark affectionately called by most Georgians, “The Big
Chicken”.

The Marietta Vet Center is the largest in the Atlanta Metro Area and has numerous offices for
counseling and family therapy. It also has a relaxation/biofeedback room, 2 large group rooms
and a Gazebo area on the premise. In addition, at the grand opening ceremony there will be one
of 50 Mobile Vet Centers (MVC) purchased by RCS to enhance outreach, visibility and
readjustment support services for combat veterans and their families in outlying communities.

The Grand Opening Event is on Saturday, November 14, 2009 with a formal 1 hour ceremony
starting at 11:30 AM followed by a tour of the facility and the Mobile Vet Center. Music will be
played by FORSCOM’s Army Ground Forces Band and food and refreshments will be served. In
addition, Ms. Tammy Duckworth, the Assistant Secretary of Public and Intergovernmental
Affairs and former Black Hawk pilot is tentatively slated as our keynote speaker. The theme for
the event is “Honoring Veterans, Family and Friends”. We would be honored to have your
presence for this special occasion.

Please feel free to us a call if you have any questions.

Curtis Lucas, Ph.D.
Team Leader
