State Senator Jonathan Perry of Kaplan will be hosting two town hall meetings on Thursday, August 14, 2014 to discuss issues with veteran healthcare. Perry will be joined by Louisiana's Secretary of Veteran's Affair David LeCerte.

The first meeting will be held at 9:00am at the Vermilion Parish Public Library on East Victor Street in Abbeville and the second meeting will take place at 1:00pm at the Rayne Civic Ballroom at 401 Gossen Park in Rayne.

Secretary LeCerte is veteran of the US Marine Corps who said,

I am extremely frustrated by the lack of transparency from federal VA regarding their current healthcare crisis. Federal VA officials need to engage veterans in a two-way conversation and seek real solutions to these problems.

The meetings are open to the public.
