Some of the topics on the docket to be discussed will deal with health and benefits. The media is invited but will NOT be permitted to video, record, or photograph anything without prior written consent due to privacy concerns.

My friend, local business owner, and Marine Corp veteran Mackie said, "The townhall meetings provide a great opportunity for the national, state and local veterans' administration leaders to hear directly from the veterans themselves about all the challenges and issues they see regularly, so that we can make changes to better serve our veterans.”

These events allow us to communicate about Veterans Administration health care programs, services, and other benefits veterans have earned, so we can better address them - West Texas VA Health Care System Director Keith Bass

The whole premise for this town hall meeting is to provide updates, engage with the veterans and their families, so as to try and assist with various concerns. This is a town hall for all veterans, caregivers, and veteran service organizations. Please join us.
