    “U.S. Representative Martha McSally tomorrow will host a Veterans Workshop to connect veterans in the 2nd Congressional district with the benefits they need and the care they deserve. Located at Empire High School, the event will feature representatives from veterans’ service organizations to participate in a three hour workshop designed for one-on-one interaction.
    “Veterans deserve top-notch care, but it can be difficult for veterans to navigate the bureaucratic maze to get the help they need. Tomorrow’s workshop will provide veterans with a unique opportunity to have representatives and experts from various agencies in one location to answer their questions and provide assistance, with one-on-one attention. I hope to see many fellow veterans at tomorrow’s event,” said Rep. McSally.
    After U.S. Representative McSally provides opening remarks, organizations will be on hand to help veterans enroll for healthcare at the VA and create claims for benefits. McSally’s District staff will be available to help veterans request assistance with any federal agency, including help with requesting copies of military records. ”
