A town hall meeting for local veterans — as well as a ceremony to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War — will be March 28.
Hosted by the Kenosha County Division of Veterans Services, the event will be 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Kenosha County Job Center, 8600 Sheridan Road.
“This event is another great opportunity for veterans, their families and the community to receive useful VA information, but most importantly to have questions answered by VA subject matter experts,” said Ali Nelson, director of the Kenosha County Division of Veterans Services. “We’re also excited to honor our Vietnam veterans and surviving spouses of the Vietnam War era.”
Veterans can ask questions about benefits, including burial, compensation, health care, life insurance, Medicare, pension, survivor’s pension, mental health, suicide prevention, education, caregivers, vet centers and CHAMPVA.
Veterans Affairs commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War are taking place across the nation.
Additionally, at the March 28 event, surviving spouses of Vietnam-era veterans — those who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces at any time from Nov. 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, regardless of location — will be honored at the ceremony and presented with a certificate and lapel pin.
