“This is an opportunity for MOAA members and others to reach out directly to the VA senor leadership and make their voices heard,” Atkins said. “MOAA is proud to assist with these outreach efforts – while we continue to work with VA on securing all manner of earned benefits, your questions and your experiences with VA programs help to identify where policy and resource changes are needed. Whether positive or negative, don’t hesitate to share in this forum, or reach out to MOAA.”


Once completed, audio from the Tele-Townhall will be posted on the VBA’s YouTube page.
