WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Rice (SC-07) today announced five “Veterans Coffee with Your Congressman” events for the month of October.  These informal meetings provide veterans with an opportunity to discuss recently passed legislation, veterans’ benefits, and other federal issues with their Congressman. 

South Carolina Association of County Veterans Affairs Officers will be present at nearly all of the events and available to answer questions about local veteran’s issues and health care. Representatives from Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Hospital and Ralph H.
