Rep. Mark Amodei R-Nev., will host a veterans’ town hall meeting on 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the historic Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 8th St., in Minden.

“This town hall meeting is an opportunity for veterans to come out and discuss challenges, offer suggestions, and address their concerns – free of any agenda,” Amodei said. “In addition to thanking them for their service, this will also be a chance for veterans to speak with VA representatives and hear more about the assistance my office can provide. If you’re a veteran in the area, I encourage you to come out to learn about the ways we can best serve you.”

Amodei, a U.S. Army veteran, has held regular veterans’ town hall meetings across Nevada in Reno, Sparks, Elko, Carson City, Minden, Fallon, Fernley, Winnemucca, and Lovelock since he was elected to Congress.

The following representatives from federal agencies serving veterans will be present to provide information and answer specific questions:

Veterans Administration Regional Office Director Sheila Jackson

Veterans Administration Sierra Nevada Health Care System Director Lisa Howard

Sierra Nevada Health Care System Deputy Chief of Staff Dr. Amy Sanguinetti

Veteran Experience Manager Marion Davis BVA

Veterans Experience Jerome Washington BVA
