The American Legion is planning a town hall meeting next month in Madeira Beach, Fla., to discuss the quality of health care at the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa and other local Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities.

The Legion will also set up a Veterans Benefits Center to help veterans enroll in VA health care and schedule VA medical appointments, file VA disability or pension benefits claims, help with resume writing and answer any questions about GI Bill education benefits.

The town hall meeting, scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Jan. 12, will be at American Legion Post 273 on 600 American Legion Dr. in Madeira Beach. Local veterans, especially those currently receiving VA health care, are encouraged to attend. The event is free and open to the public and other veterans service organizations.

The Veterans Benefits Center will also be at Post 273 and operate Jan. 13-15 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The American Legion is conducting town hall meetings and Veterans Benefits Centers across the country as part of its national program to improve VA health care and help veterans get the benefits they have earned through their military service.
