Veteran Town Hall focuses better communication between veterans and organizations
GOLD HILL, Ore. —
Veterans in the Rogue Valley have taken the first step in coming up with ways to better help their needs, during a Town Hall in Gold Hill Tuesday night.
Oregon State Representative Sal Esquivel who is a Vietnam Veteran, spoke to the crowed about how important it is to focus on the needs of the veteran first and for most.
Representative Esquivel and the other veterans talked about better ways to help them with things like post traumatic stress disorder, suicide, post service divorce and how to get the right information and services to them.
A couple of suggestions the group talked about was a veteran Facebook page where they can get answers to their questions in real time and a website that has a list of all organizations that help veterans and the numbers for who to talk to.
