Rep. Green Invites Constituents to Veterans Forum

Press Release
Representatives will provide information and resources about veteran programs and services

HOUSTON – On Thursday, Congressman Gene Green is hosting a Veterans Forum in Houston where veterans and families can learn about the new and current federal policies that affect them and receive information about veteran’s benefits and services from local groups and government agencies.

“Our servicemen and women have given so much to our country, risking their lives and sacrificing the comforts they work selflessly to defend. We need to make sure they are greeted with the same level of commitment when they return home,” Green said. “Veterans shouldn’t have to wait months to get their benefits or make a medical appointment.  We’re hosting this Forum so people can get direct assistance, and learn about what we’re doing to improve the overall system.”

Representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Houston Regional Office, Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, Houston National Cemetery, Texas Veterans Land Board, Texas Veterans Commission, and American GI Forum will be available to answer individual questions. They will also provide information about healthcare, disability and pensions benefits, and employment services.

Representatives from the Veterans Affairs offices at San Jacinto College, Houston Community College Northeast Campus, and Lone Star College will also be in attendance to discuss education programs.
