WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — White River Junction VA Healthcare System and Veterans Benefits Administration are hosting a virtual town hall on Oct. 13 that will focus on the PACT Act, according to a news release.

The Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act of 2022 is one of the largest health and benefit expansions in American history.

It recognizes toxic exposure as a “cost of war” by addressing a wide range of issues experienced by veterans who have been exposed to toxic substances. The new law also expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for veterans with toxic exposures and veterans of the Vietnam era, Gulf War era, and Post-9/11 era.

The free virtual town hall on Oct. 13 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. is open to veterans, their families and the public for open dialogue and to learn more about the PACT Act and who it benefits.

Signup or pre-registration is not required. More information about the town hall is available by calling 802-295-9363 and asking for extension 5880. 

The Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting can be found online at or by calling 1-872-701-0185. The phone conference ID is 984 524 129#.
