Town hall meeting scheduled for women veterans in Fargo tonight

FARGO — A town hall meeting for women military veterans is scheduled in Fargo.

Representatives from the American Legion's national headquarters plan to attend the event, which will focus on health care for women's veterans. It is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at the American Legion Post 2 in Fargo.

The meeting is part of an annual evaluation by Legion officials, who also are scheduled to visit the Fargo VA Medical Center to interview patients, staff and administrators.

Women now make up about 15 percent of the country's 1.4 million service members. About 340,000 women veterans are enrolled in the VA health care system.
