WASHINGTON, D.C. – Those interested in veterans issues are encouraged to call in to a telephone town hall that will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 23.
The call will be hosted by Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03). He will be joined by Congressman Mark Takano (CA-41), Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, to talk about what Congress has done to improve care and services for our veterans.
Another topic will be an update on the effort to bring a new veterans’ health care facility to Ocean County.
“The Veterans Administration has failed twice in the past four years to secure a location for a new and updated health care facility for our veterans. I’ve been working with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to find out why and will be providing further updates in the coming months,” Kim said.
The current facility in Brick has inadequate parking and too few staff to handle the amount of veterans needing care.
“Our veterans are a critical part of Burlington and Ocean Counties, so when issues impact them, they impact us all,” said Congressman Kim. “Whether it’s helping our veterans get back on their feet in the wake of the coronavirus crisis or making sure the VA follows through on its promises to provide good health care to those who served, shining a light on these issues is critical. I look forward to hearing from people across our communities during this town hall.”
