Tucson Vet Center Hosts Town Hall Meeting

Southern Arizona veterans will get a chance to critique the VA Health Care System during a town hall meeting Friday.

The session is one of a series being held around the country. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald has asked all VA facilities to hold sessions to improve communications and hear directly from veterans.

The Tucson session will be Friday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Tucson Vet Center. Representatives from both the Tucson and Phoenix VA will be there to help veterans with questions related to their care and benefits during and after the meeting.

Members of the eligibility and enrollment staff will also be on hand to answer questions about eligibility for healthcare and to provide assistance to veterans who want to enroll.

The town hall is open to all members of the public, according to VA officials.

In the wee small hours of the morning, when most of us are working on REM sleep, Morning Edition host and reporter, Dennis Lambert busily prepares the news and information KJZZ listeners hear as they prepare for the day. He did that for KJZZ listeners from 1996 to 2016. Dennis retired in 2016.
