Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will host six Veterans Forums next month in Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish and Whatcom counties.
The forum in San Juan County is from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 5, at the American Legion Post 163, 110 First St. South, Friday Harbor.
The forums are opportunities for veterans to receive updates on legislation affecting them and get answers to questions about the Department of Veterans Affairs; health care; job training; and housing.
“Veterans know their communities better than anybody,” Larsen, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, said, “and that is part of the reason these forums are so important. Answering questions and hearing concerns directly from local veterans is the single best way for me to continue being a strong veterans’ advocate in Congress.”
