Loebsack in Knoxville Wednesday


Knoxville — Congressman Dave Loebsack announced that he will bring his Serving Those Who Served tour to Knoxville on Wednesday, July 2. These forums will give veterans and their families an opportunity to speak directly with Loebsack. Staff will also be on hand for veterans to seek assistance if they are having issues with the Veterans Administration, or any Federal agency. Loebsack will be joined by representatives from local Veteran Service Organizations, County Veterans Affairs Officers and other groups.

“As Iowans come together to celebrate the birth of our nation, we must take time to remember those men and women who fought for the freedoms we treasure. As a military parent and member of the House Armed Services Committee, I take great pride in Serving Those Who Served. I strongly believe that there is no greater responsibility we have as a nation than to ensure our servicemembers have the support, equipment, and training they need to safely carry out their mission and that we care for our veterans with the same dignity and honor with which they served. I look forward to meeting with veterans and their families to discuss issues important to them and provide any assistance my office can help with.”

Loebsack will be at the VFW John Myers Post, 413 Lincoln Street, Knoxville, at 4 p.m.
