As Veterans Day approaches, numerous ceremonies will be held across the area to honor all service members, starting Wednesday morning.

The Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Mountain Home will start the day with a 9 a.m. veterans ceremony in the conference room of Building 200. An 11 a.m. Marine Corps birthday ceremony will take place at the same location.

At noon, veterans will find resource tables set up, also in the conference room, where they can find assistance with the medical center, veterans benefits and receive information from representatives of the Mountain Home National Cemetery.

Veterans and their family members, along with interested members of the community, are invited to a Veterans Town Hall  at 1 p.m.

The Town Hall will feature leadership and staff from the VAMC, Mountain Home National Cemetery, and the Nashville Regional Office of the Veterans Benefit Administration.

The VAMC and National Cemetery will have staff available from various program offices to answer questions and concerns related to health care and cemetery benefits.

VBA staff will be available to provide personalized benefits assistance, to include claim and appeals status for veterans and their dependents. Claims specialists will be on-site beginning at noon in the conference center and will be available first-come, first-serve, for assistance prior to the Town Hall session.

Information tables from the medical center and cemetery will be available beginning at noon. Leadership will give a short presentation beginning at 1 p.m., to be followed by time for questions and answers.

A special traveling exhibit, “Wall of Fallen Warriors,” will be available all day, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., in the atrium of Building 200.
