SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, will hold a town hall meeting that will focus on the needs of Utah’s veterans and military community.

The event will be held 7:30-9 p.m. Tuesday at the Ed Kenley Centennial Amphitheater in Layton.

“As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I have an important responsibility in guiding the actions Congress takes to maintain the capabilities of our armed forces to provide for our national defense,” Lee said in a news release. “I also have the responsibility to ensure that we provide veterans who have served the country with the benefits and recognition that they deserve.”

Lee's staff that helps veterans with federal casework will also be in attendance to offer services to veterans who need additional help working with federal agencies such as the Department of Veterans Affairs.

For those who are unable to attend, Lee has made a form available on his website where constituents can leave their feedback or questions for the senator to address during the town hall meeting.
