The forums are opportunities for veterans to receive updates on legislation affecting them and get answers to questions about the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), health care, job training and housing.

“Veterans know their communities better than anybody,” Larsen, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, said, “and that is part of the reason these forums are so important. Answering questions and hearing concerns directly from local veterans is the single best way for me to continue being a strong veterans’ advocate in Congress.” Washington state is home to more than 540,000 veterans, including just over 59,000 veterans in the Second Congressional District. Larsen is committed to ensuring that women and men who have served in the U.S. military have access to the resources and services needed. Larsen has held 63 public Veterans Forums to hear directly from local veterans about how he can better serve them in Congress.
