Nov 6, 2015 Issues: Veterans

ROSEVILLE, MI – Rep. Sandy Levin (MI-09) today announced that he will spend Veterans Week, November 9-13, holding both public events and off-the-record meetings with a variety of community organizations and government agencies that provide services to local veterans.                                    

Rep. Levin will also participate in local events honoring veterans and their service. He will meet with veterans and their families to discuss the challenges they face upon returning to civilian life, and to see if they are receiving adequate support services. He will visit with veterans receiving job training resources and students utilizing GI bill benefits, and will also meet privately with local veterans’ service organizations that assist with homelessness prevention and mental health services.

“I have heard time and again from veterans that the transition to civilian life is not always smooth. There are services available to veterans in our community, and we must ensure that they are adequate and responsive to local needs. We must also make sure that vets and their families are aware of these opportunities in their community,” said Rep. Levin. “I look forward to hearing from our veterans about what we can do to provide better assistance.”
