American Legion invites veterans to share VA experiences at Washington, D.C. town hall meeting

In light of recent reports about dangerous conditions and concerns over patient safety at the Washington D.C. VA Medical Center, The American Legion invites all D.C. area veterans and their family members to a town hall meeting to discuss their VA care.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, inside of the auditorium at D.C.’s VA hospital, 50 Irving Street NW.

The town hall event is one of about a dozen that the Legion will conduct around the United States this year. The Legion hosts these events to hear feedback from veterans about the quality of health care they receive at their local VA facility.

Representatives from The American Legion National Headquarters Washington Office, American Legion Department of D.C., the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as well as the District’s congressional delegation will be in attendance.
