Rep. Mark Ouimet sponsoring forum for veterans with focus on transition from military to civilian life
State Rep. Mark Ouimet, R-Scio Township, is sponsoring a veterans forum in Ann Arbor to address concerns about benefit coverage and the transition from military to civilian life.
Jason Allen, senior deputy for the Michigan Department of Veterans Affairs, is expected to attend and answer questions.
"I encourage all area veterans to attend this important forum to help get their questions answered about benefits and other veterans services," Ouimet said in a statement.
"Veterans have sacrificed so much to protect our country and way of life, and one important way to show our gratitude is by making sure they receive the benefits they deserve."
Veterans who are unable to attend the forum are encouraged to contact Ouimet toll free at 855-627-5052 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns.
