U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) announced today (Nov. 17) that he is bringing the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs to Ohio for a special hearing on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at the main branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library starting at 1:15 p.m.

Brown is asking for input from Ohio veterans on issues affecting them.

“Ohio veterans served their nation honorably, and they deserve the highest quality of support in return,” Brown said.
