CVA Announces ‘Veterans and Military’ Town Halls with Fiorina, Rubio, Cruz

National policymakers to headline events in Iowa, South Carolina

Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) has announced three new “Veterans and Military Town Hall” events as part of its “Defend and Reform” Policy Series. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Carly Fiorina will headline the following events:

  • Saturday, October 24: Sen. Marco Rubio, Greenville, SC
  • Friday, November 13: Carly Fiorina, Council Bluffs, IA
  • Saturday, November 21: Sen. Ted Cruz, Mason City/Clear Lake, IA

These policy forums will highlight issues facing Iowa and South Carolina veterans and military families, and shape the national conversation on policies that matter most to veterans and military families across the country. 

Each event will feature remarks from these leading policymakers, a conversation with CVA’s CEO Pete Hegseth, and a Q&A with attendees. Hegseth provided the following statement on the announcement:

“Veterans and military families deserve the chance to look America’s leading policymakers in the eye and ask them what they would do to keep our country safe, and ensure those who have served are treated with the highest standard of dignity and care. 

“These town hall events give them the chance to do just that.  

“Senator Rubio, Sen. Cruz and Mrs. Fiorina have all demonstrated a strong commitment to our veterans, and a seriousness about addressing the problems plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs. They understand that not only should our service members be given every resource to keep them safe on the battlefield and enable them to accomplish the mission, but also that we must keep our promise to care for them when they come home.

“We look forward to engaging with these national policymakers on the issues facing the VA and the Department of Defense (DOD), and giving veterans and military families in Iowa and South Carolina the chance to learn what solutions these policymakers would put forward to address those problems.

“Now is the time to ask the key questions, and propose the big solutions, that will ensure America’s greatest days still lie ahead.” 

The ‘Veterans and Military Town Hall’ series is a continuation of the Concerned Veterans for America ‘Defend and Reform’ Policy Series, an ongoing series of policy reform events that CVA has hosted in Washington, D.C., and across the country since 2012.
