Congresswoman Grace Meng will host the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs regularly at her Flushing office, 40-13 159th Street, corner of Northern Boulevard, to provide her constituents services without having to travel.
Through the program, a representitive from the VA will be available once a month to meet with local veterans to address issues or concerns about benefits or services.
“I am very excited to partner with the VA on this important initiative,” said Meng. “Now, local veterans will not be forced to hike to a VA facility in order to receive help or information about their benefits or claims. It will be a great convenience to area veterans and I’m proud to offer it. In the wake of Veterans Day, we are once again reminded about the tremendous debt of gratitude we owe to those who served in the armed forces. We can never thank them enough for their service and sacrifice to this great nation. I urge all my constituents who are veterans to take advantage of these special VA office hours.”
Constituents must make an appointment four days in advance. Contact the office at 718-358-MENG.
