VA to hold town halls in Iron, Gogebic counties


March 2, 2019

Veterans and their families have been invited to upcoming veterans town halls in Gogebic and Iron (Wis.) counties March 12-13.

The meetings will be hosted by officials from the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center and the local county veterans service offices.

“These town halls are not limited to those who use our services. We welcome any veterans and their families who may not be enrolled in VA health care to come and learn about its services and benefits,” said Brad Nelson, public affairs officer at the Iron Mountain-based VA Medical Center.

There will be two town hall meetings on March 12. First at 2 p.m. in Watersmeet at the Lac Vieux Desert Tribal Health Clinic on U.S. 45. The second meeting will be held in Bessemer at the American Legion Post on Moore Street.

On March, there will be a town hall meeting in Mercer, Wis., at 10 a.m. at the Mercer Town Hall on Railroad Street.

Leaders from the VA Medical Center, Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and area county veterans service officers will be on hand to provide a presentation on VA’s new initiatives and programs, such as VA’s new Whole Health program, and hear comments and concerns as well as answer any questions regarding VA health care, according to Nelson.

“For those already enrolled and using VA health care, it will provide them the opportunity to learn about services they were not aware of and to provide us feedback on the care we provide,” said Nelson.

For more information, contact Nelson in Iron Mountain at 800-215-8262, ext. 32001; John Frello at the Gogebic County Veterans Service Office in Bessemer at 906-667-1100; or Erick Nasi at the Iron County Veterans Service Office in Hurley at 715-561-2190.
