Dear Mr. dsm,

As we honor those who have served our country this Memorial Day, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill wants to hear from Missourians about what Washington can do to ensure our veterans receive the care and treatment they deserve. Next week, Senator McCaskill will travel across the state hosting a series of veterans town hall forums to gather input and listen to the concerns of our veterans and other Missourians.

Given the tremendous sacrifices our veterans made in defending this country, Senator McCaskill is committed to ensuring they receive the support and respect they have earned, including the best level of medical care possible, upon their return. Most recently, Senator McCaskill introduced the TRICARE Mental Health Care Access Act to help meet the growing demand for better access to mental health services for members of our military and their families. Senator McCaskill will be looking for input from Missourians on additional ways the government can continue to honor our veterans through quality care and programs designed to meet their needs.

Please join Senator McCaskill for a veterans town hall forum at:

9:15 AM

VFW Post 3944
10815 Midland Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63114

Visit our website to sign up to attend the St. Louis forum.

For additional information, please contact one of Senator McCaskill's five Missouri offices.

Constituents are highly encouraged to register for the events. Depending on the turn-out, there may be more people wishing to attend the event than there is capacity. Seating may be limited and will be first-come, first-served.

Individuals with disabilities who require auxiliary aids or services to participate in this event should contact Joeana Middleton at 314-367-0255.
I applaud Senator Claire McCaskill for inviting a tea partier like myself, but why send the invitation after the event? Perhaps her strategy to make the trains run on time is to notify all the passengers waiting on the platform that their train left without them four hours ago.

Not like it's much better, but I got my email from her at 3:48 AM.

I got mine at 8:30 - not even time to run to the car to get there. There's method to her madness!

Mine came the night before, but I hardly find that consoling. I could never run an office that way. I'd be canned for incompetence!
