Veterans can attend a Town Hall meeting at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center on Thursday.
The event will focus on the facility's five year Strategic Plan.
Before the Town Hall begins, an assistance fair will be held at 3 p.m., which provides an opportunity for local vets to learn about the medical center and get information on programs, as well as the U.S. Congressional office located inside the medical center.
It's a first of its kind in the United States and was set up by Congressman Brian Mast, a wounded war veteran, who shares the office with the other members of Palm Beach County's House delegation.
The facility's spokesperson, Kenita Gordon, says there's been a lot of positive feedback since it the office opened in December.
"It shows the public and our veterans that we are really trying to help. We are trying to be as transparent as possible. Veterans have that convenience of coming here right after they're done with that appointment. And maybe they're having a problem with another agency."
Here are more details on the Town Hall:
