American Legion Sets Up Command Post To Help El Paso Veterans Get Medical Care

The American Legion wants to help El Paso veterans get the health care they deserve. They held a town hall meeting last night and listened to more than 150 veterans talk about the problems they face with the El Paso VA. The Legion also announced that they will set up a command center that will help vets cut through the VA red tape.

At last night’s meeting, officials with the Legion heard local vets detail the long wait times to get doctors appointments, and the hassle they run into when trying to file for veterans benefits. After the meeting, the American Legion’s director of Veteran Affairs said the group will be meeting with local VA officials today to discuss the issues raised at last night’s meeting.

The Legion will also make a local Veterans Crisis Command Center available to help El Paso veterans with a variety of issues including help in scheduling appointment on the spot, enrolling in the VA, and getting the counseling they need.

The American Legion Command Crisis Center will be open today from noon to 8 p.m., 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, and 8 a.m. to noon Friday at the American Legion Post 58, 4724 Vulcan.

If you are a veteran, or know one who needs help getting benefits, let them know about this Command Center. Our military deserves all the benefits they worked and fought so hard to earn.
