TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Memphis Veterans Affair Medical Center held a town hall meeting on Tuesday to talk to veterans about resources they have available.

Veterans and their families were able to hear about patient experience, mental health, benefits and preventing veteran suicide.

Meetings like this are scheduled so the executive leadership team can work with veterans one-on-one when addressing issues.

"Many of them here don't come to Memphis all the time to see a doctor; they see clinics here in Tupelo and the surrounding areas,” said Willie Logan, the public affairs officer. “When we come here to tell them about changes and different things that are going on with VA and their healthcare, they're happy to be here and know what's going on."
