Veterans and their families are invited to a Veteran Town Hall scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at American Legion Post 44, 4473 N. Branch St., Wabeno. The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center will be hosting the town hall, which is open to all veterans and their families and friends.

Leaders from the VA Medical Center and the Forest and Oconto county veterans service officers will be on hand to provide a presentation on VA services, discuss initiatives to increase access to VA health care, answer questions, and listen to veterans’ comments and concerns.

There will also be a presentation of Vietnam War 50th anniversary commemoration pins to Vietnam era veterans who served from Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975.

“We have done a number of these Veteran Town Halls and found them to be very beneficial in our understanding of Veterans’ concerns and helping them to resolve any issues they may have,” said Brad Nelson, public affairs officer at the Iron Mountain VA Medical Center.

In the last five years, the VA medical center has conducted 54 Veteran Town Halls throughout the Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin.
