GREEN BAY — On May 20, the Milo C. Huempfner VA Outpatient Clinic, part of the Milwaukee VA Health Care System, will host a PACT Act awareness symposium to inform Veterans, community leaders and Veteran advocates, their families, caregivers and survivors about the PACT Act and encourage them to apply for the toxic-exposure-related health care and benefits they have earned.
The event, 10 a.m. to noon at the Brown County Library, 515 Pine St., will include informational booths and a panel discussion about the landmark legislation, which is the largest expansion of Veteran health care and benefits in decades.
