Navigating the VA system is not the easiest thing in the world. Many veterans don't get the healthcare they deserve, but this week, those veterans will have the chance to get some help with the VA.

The El Paso Veterans Affairs Health Care System will have a town-hall meeting for veterans on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event will be at the American Legion Post No. 58 at 4724 Vulcan Avenue in northeast El Paso.

There will be another event on Friday of this week. A benefits claims clinic at the same American Legion post will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and VA staff will be on hand to help veterans with enrollment and eligibility questions.

Claims specialists will be on hand to answer questions about new or pending claims.

Our veterans deserve their VA benefits, so please make sure if you know a veteran, you let them know about these two VA events.
