PACT ACT Town Hall and VA Enrollment Event

Potsdam AMVETS Post 282

6771 US Route 11

Potsdam , NY



Syracuse VA Medical Center will hold an event from 12 noon to 3pm Friday, February 10th at the Potsdam AMVETS Post to help Veterans understand how they may be able to get healthcare benefits under the PACT Act and answers question about VA healthcare enrollment and related issues.  The Post is located at 6771 US Route 11 in Potsdam, NY.  


The PACT Act expands healthcare for the estimated 3.5 million Veterans who were exposed to toxic burn pits areas used to discard trash by incinerating it. Burn pits were common around U.S. military camps in Iraq and Afghanistan. Studies have since linked them to cancer, asthma, and other chronic health problems. The PACT Act was signed into law on August 8 after it received bipartisan Congressional support.


If you’re a Veteran but not enrolled with VA Healthcare, you must bring a photo ID and a copy of your DD214.
