Here’s what you need to know about Choice Card

If you go

Veterans and their family members are invited to attend a Town Hall meeting from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, 1550 Main Ave., in Durango. This will provide you with the opportunity to meet the new director of the New Mexico VA Health Care System, Andrew Welch. Write down all your questions and concerns about your VA health care and the new Veterans Choice Card and bring them to this meeting, so they can be addressed.
