In a video message released today, Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) invited veterans from across the Eighth District to attend an upcoming information night with Boehner staff and representatives from the Cleveland VA Regional Office, VA medical centers, Ohio Department of Veterans Services, and County Veterans Service Officers. These events aim to provide assistance and information to constituents about services available to veterans in Ohio. In order to reach as many vets as possible, there will be three events throughout the district: Hamilton on September 9th
, Greenville on September 10th
, and Springfield on September 12th
. Find an information flyer with more details here.
In the message to vets, Boehner says the informational sessions will "provide you with the opportunity to ask questions about your disability claims, receive the latest information directly from the VA, and much more."
