The meeting will be held Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the American Legion Post 330 at 330 Entrance Dr. in New Haven. Representatives from the Legion's national staff will attend the meeting.

American Legion representatives will also visit the Fort Wayne VA facility to interview patients, staff and administrators.
