THURSDAY: Spanberger to Host Virtual Telephone Town Hall Focused on Issues Facing Virginia Veterans & Military Families

During Thursday’s Event, the Congresswoman will be joined by Representatives from the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to Answer Questions Directly from Virginia Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Thursday, February 15, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host an open, public telephone town hall focused on issues facing Virginia’s Veterans, military families, and caregivers. The virtual event will also be livestreamed via video on Spanberger’s congressional website and Facebook page.

Next Thursday, Spanberger will be joined by representatives from the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to answer questions directly from Seventh District Veterans and their families. She will also share important updates for Veterans and survivors looking to apply for new U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits that were signed into law as part of the bipartisan Honoring Our PACT Act, which she voted to pass in August 2022.

“As the congressional representative for Virginia’s Seventh District, I have the honor of representing tens of thousands of Veterans, active-duty servicemembers, and their families,” said Spanberger. “Every opportunity I have to hear directly from Virginia’s Veterans and their families helps me better advocate on their behalf through my work in Congress, and I am looking forward to connecting with many Virginians during Thursday night’s event. I’m grateful that representatives from the Virginia Department of Veterans Services will be joining me once again to share their expertise and advice — and I encourage all Virginians with questions about the VA, backlogged claims, mental health concerns, and more to attend.”
