Dear Veteran Service Organization Leader, Service Officer and VAVS Committee member:
As the Director of the Charles George VA Medical Center (CGVAMC), it is a privilege and an honor to serve those who have served our great nation.
As you may know the CGVAMC conducts regular meetings with many organizational groups. The candid conversations and feedback we receive is truly beneficial and essential to understanding the needs of the Veterans we serve. The VSOs are the eyes and ears into our patient community.
These meetings are informal in nature and above all else, they are discussions in which we will be listening for honest feedback from users of the system and highly interested stakeholders.
On Thursday, September 18, 5:00 PM, a Town Hall Listening Session will be held at the CGVAMC in the Atrium, Basement Level. This meeting is open to all interested Veterans and family members, VAVS Committee members, Veterans Service Officers and service organizational leaders.
If you have any specific topics you wish to have addressed during the meeting, please contact Darlene Laughter, Chief, Voluntary Service at (828) 299-2514 or you may email her at
I look forward to this opportunity to hear from you, as our goal is to provide our Veterans with the highest quality of care in the most efficient and timeliest manner.
