Veteran Town Hall Tour coming to Upper Peninsula

A Veteran Town Hall Tour sponsored by the Oscar G. Johnson VA will travel to the U.P. with stops in Menominee, Escanaba, Christmas, Gwinn, Marquette, Ishpeming, Lanse and Crystal Falls.

The tour will allow veterans the opportunity to discuss changes to their benefits and healthcare.

.”Veterans can expect updates on the PACT Act and the construction projects we are working on, but the most important part of these events happens when we are answering veterans’ questions and hearing their feedback live and in person,” VA medical center Director John P. Shealey said.

The events are open to veterans, their families and members of the community.
