ATLANTA — U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., announced that he will hold a series of veteran-focused events throughout August while he is in Georgia for the month-long work period.

Isakson will meet with officials at four of Georgia’s U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs facilities located in Augusta, Dublin, Hinesville and Atlanta. He also will hold a series of public town hall meetings that will focus on veterans and their care.

The public is invited to attend the veteran-focused town hall meetings. The locations and times for the meetings nearest to Effingham are:

• Aug. 14, 4:15-5:15 p.m., McGrath Keen Sr. Conference Center, Dublin-Laurens Co. Chamber of Commerce, 1200 Belleview Ave., Dublin

Isakson is a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. Most recently, Isakson worked as a Senate negotiator to reach a bipartisan, bicameral agreement on the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 that will improve care for veterans at VA health care facilities across the country.

In the Senate, Isakson has taken an active role in helping shine a light on the VA’s problems, including holding a Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearing at the Atlanta VA health care facility in August 2013.
