AARP Mississippi is inviting all Veterans in the area to attend the AARP Veterans Town Hall on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The free event will be held at the Richland Community Center, 410 East Harper St. in Richland, MS. Veterans may bring one guest. Lunch will be served.
With nearly 6 million members who are Veterans, AARP is committed to aiding Veterans in the transition from successful military life to effective civilian life. AARP is working to become a go-to source for help and information for Veterans and their families.
“We salute and honor everyone who has served our great country,” said Bettye Taylor, AARP Mississippi State President. “Whether it’s advocating on Capitol Hill or providing caregiving resources, we’re helping Veterans face their unique challenges so they can discover their real possibilities.”
In 2014, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reported that 219,000 Veterans resided in Mississippi. AARP Mississippi seeks to bring together Veterans of all eras to discuss accessible resources and answer one-on-one questions. The event will feature information about caregiving, financial security, fraud prevention and other topics important to Veterans. AARP Mississippi will provide Veterans the information they need to acquire the support and benefits available to them.
