Rep. Tom Weatherston, R-Caledonia, and Secretary John Scocos from the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs will host a listening session from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday in Caledonia at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Avenue.

While the session is open to the public, a written statement Friday from Weatherston’s office stressed that this event was organized primarily for veterans.

“(The session) is intended for military veterans who would like an update on veterans issues and that may have any questions or comments about the (VA) or their benefits,” the statement reads.
