Esty to hear about issues facing Conn. Veterans

SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty is holding a roundtable discussion this afternoon to hear from Connecticut veterans about issues they are facing.

The 5th congressional district Democrat plans to discuss issues ranging from health care and backlogs in the Veterans Administration to employment and education.

Esty is meeting today with veterans, local elected officials and representatives from state and local veterans organizations, social service groups, workforce development programs and colleges.

Esty said a bill she recently introduced ensure the timely replacement of military decorations for service members, veterans and their families was inspired by local veterans who contacted her office seeking help with requests for replacement medals.
