U.S. Rep. Ron Kind joined VA White House Senior Advisor Jake Leinenkugel and Tomah VA Medical Center Director Victoria Brahm at the Tomah VA to attend the Foundational Services event. The event brought together community groups, VA health care professionals, and veterans to highlight alternative health practices and services available to Wisconsin veterans.

“Many Wisconsin veterans I talk with discuss how challenging it is to transition back into civilian life. It is critical that we let our veterans know that they are not alone and there are a number of VA and community resources available to help them, which is why things like the Foundational Services event are so useful. It was great to see so many Wisconsinites come together to ensure our veterans get the care they have earned and deserve,” said Rep. Kind.

Recently, Rep. Kind held town hall events throughout Wisconsin to hear directly from veterans about the challenge of transitioning back to civilian life and their experiences with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
