The American Legion is hosting town hall meetings in both Augusta and Atlanta next week to discuss Veterans Administration health care.

Organizers said the meetings will focus on the “the past, present and future of health care at the Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers in those cities.”

Both the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center in Augusta and the Atlanta VA Medical Center have been accused of subpar oversight and backlogs for certain services. Organizers say they’ll visit each facility and interview patients, staff and administrators.

The Augusta meeting is slated for Jan. 29 at American Legion Post 205 on Highland Avenue.

The Atlanta meeting is scheduled for Jan. 27 at American Legion Post 1 on Shallowford Road.

Both meetings are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
