PHOENIX (KSAZ) - The American Legion is looking to help find a possible solution for veterans looking still looking for medical care.

A town hall will be held on Monday night at the American Legion Post 1, near 7th Avenue and Van Buren.
    
A similar town hall was held last month to give veterans the chance to voice their frustrations and concerns.

They'll have another chance to do so on Monday night at 7 p.m.

Veterans will also get information about a veterans' crisis command center, which will be set up to help them and family members affected by the healthcare scandal at the Phoenix VA Medical Center.

In addition, a crisis command center will be set up at American Legion Post 1.

The crisis center will have a triage team to identify problems and then direct them to appropriate stations on-site for benefits claims, enrollment in VA health care and bereavement counseling.
