This year, AARP Mississippi is presenting Veterans Town Halls throughout the state. So far, the events have been held in Southaven and Richland.
The next AARP Veterans Town Hall is planned for Biloxi on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The free event will be held at the Biloxi Civic Center, 578 Howard Avenue. Veterans may bring one guest. Lunch will be served.
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 resources and answer one-on-one questions. The AARP Veterans Town Halls feature information about caregiving, financial security, fraud prevention and other topics important to veterans. Representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs also are available to answer questions.
With nearly 6 million AARP members who are veterans, AARP is committed to aiding them 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 AARP Mississippi State President Mrs. Bettye Taylor. “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.”
