The Department of Veterans Affairs plans to be a major presence at the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in October, with a pavilion filled with experts to help with questions about veterans’ programs.

The event will be held Oct. 3 to 5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Located on the main exhibit floor, the Veterans Pavilion includes booths providing information and assistance on benefits, rehabilitation, health and mental health programs, and veterans’ employment services. Experts will be available to talk with current and former service members, families and survivors.

“VA’s No. 1 priority is to keep our veterans safe and healthy by providing the best care and services available,” VA officials said in a statement. “This is all part of the department’s ongoing transformation called MyVA to vastly improve the veteran experience. This is an incredible opportunity to learn more about VA benefits and services and how to apply.”

The U.S. Labor Department’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service also will be present to provide information on job programs.

AUSA’s event is open to those with an identifiable relationship with the U.S. Army. Registration details: http://ausameetings.org/2016annualmeeting/register/
