Department of Veterans Affairs Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System to host Veteran Town Hall on March 28, 2018 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System will host a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, March 28th at the Norfolk Senior Center, 307 West Prospect Ave, Norfolk, NE beginning at 6:00 p.m. Veterans, family members, survivors, and the public are invited to attend. The meetings are intended to provide an open forum for VA to hear directly from beneficiaries to continue our system-wide improvements for Veteran health care. This Town Hall is part of an ongoing effort to regularly meet with Veterans across the health care system.  

“All Veterans and their families are encouraged to come out and bring questions or concerns about VA health care and benefits,” said André Kok, Public Affairs Officer. “Town Halls are a great way to learn about what is working well and ways we can improve our services.”  VA staff will be available to respond to a range of questions including the Veterans Choice Program, enrollment and eligibility, travel, and local clinic services. 

Added to this Town Hall is a special recognition of Vietnam War period Veterans. VA Nebraska-Western Iowa is proud to take part in this national effort to thank and honor Vietnam Veterans as part of the 50th Anniversary Commemoration.  During a brief ceremony, Vietnam Veteran lapel pins will be presented in a dignified manner to each Vietnam Veteran or family member along with remarks to reflect the nation’s thanks for their service and sacrifice.
