Veteran Cropped

A local veterans group is hosting a town hall June 12 focused on health care for military veterans living in and around Tuscaloosa.

The event is part of The American Legion’s System Worth Saving initiative, which has  the goal of improving health care for veterans.

During the town hall, happening at 6 p.m. in the Belk Activity Center’s community room at Bowers Park in Tuscaloosa, veterans will have a chance to share their experiences with American Legion officials, Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center staff and others on-hand who can address any issues or questions regarding VA health care experiences.

“In the past six months, The American Legion has restarted these vital visits after a pause during the pandemic,” said American Legion Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Commission Chairman Autrey James in a statement. “We’ve held town halls on both coasts, in the Bronx and in Sacramento. Now, we are conducting a visit in the South so we can learn more about what issues and concerns veterans here have. We’ll then work together with VA representatives to improve health care for veterans in and around Tuscaloosa.”

 The event is free and no registration is required.
