Third annual series of veterans town halls to coincide with July 4th holiday

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced that he will bring his Serving Those Who Served tour to Davenport and Clinton on THURSDAY, July 3. These forums will give veterans and their families an opportunity to speak directly with Congressman Loebsack. Staff will also be on hand for veterans to seek assistance if they are having issues with the Veterans Administration, or any Federal agency. Loebsack will be joined by representatives from local Veteran Service Organizations, County Veterans Affairs Officers and other groups.

“As Iowans come together to celebrate the birth of our nation, we must take time to remember those men and women who fought for the freedoms we treasure. As a military parent and member of the House Armed Services Committee, I take great pride in Serving Those Who Served. I strongly believe that there is no greater responsibility we have as a nation than to ensure our servicemembers have the support, equipment, and training they need to safely carry out their mission and that we care for our veterans with the same dignity and honor with which they served. I look forward to meeting with veterans and their families to discuss issues important to them and provide any assistance my office can help with.”

Loebsack will also hold forums in Muscatine, Iowa City, Ottumwa, Ft. Madison, Burlington, Newton, Knoxville and Washington. This is the third year that Loebsack has hosted town halls specifically for veterans around the July 4th holiday. Veterans, their families and media are invited to attend.
