  The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Manchester VA Medical Center will host a town hall next week for veterans, family members and the public to provide feedback on VA operations and recommendations for VA programs.

The town hall will be led by Veterans Integrated Services Network director Ryan Lilly and members of the Manchester VA Medical Center Leadership on July 8 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

This town hall is one of many the Manchester VA will hold across the Granite State, and will be an open forum for veterans to discuss and engage VA officials about their healthcare and benefits.

Congressional stakeholders, veteran service and non-governmental organizations are encouraged to attend the event, which will be held in the Manchester VA Medical Center’s Training and Education Room.

Please help the Pup Tent #1 Cooties have a successful blood drive. This time we are located at the Hudson VFW 5791 post home. Donating blood is easy, especially if you make an appointment. The sponsor code for this drive is VFW5791 so be sure to enter that when you make an appointment. See you on June 29th.

The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

TREES FOR TROOPS

There’s nothing like the smell of a fresh tree to get you into the holiday spirit, and no one is more deserving of a little Christmas cheer than our service members and their families. Since 2005 the Trees for Troops program, run by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, has provided farm grown Christmas trees to our service members overseas and their families in the United States. 2017 is a banner year for the program, reaching more than 200,000 trees delivered and covering every branch of the military at close to 65 bases in 17 countries.
