DelBene forms advisory board to help improve veterans’ quality of life
For veterans, transitioning back to civilian life is not easy.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is supposed to help with this but that is not always the case.
Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) is working to help with this through a new Veterans Advisory Board she formed this year. The board, which has been in the works since around May or June, held its first meeting on Tuesday at VFW Post 2995 in Redmond.
The purpose of the board is for DelBene to hear from local veterans about ways the federal government can better serve them.
