Sorry I'm late in getting this up, but what a great concept. It's happening today from 2-4 EST.

More details after the jump:

Warrior Care Webhall

The Military Health System will host a Web town hall on Nov. 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. Eastern time on www.health.mil as part of the ongoing dialog between senior military leaders and service members and their families about the Defense Department's medical care programs and services for its wounded, ill and injured troops.   Providing care to wounded, ill, and injured service members is a top priority of the Defense Department and MHS. Senior Defense leaders are committed to ensuring service members, families and care providers are continually informed about the latest transformation of warrior care news and improvement of services.   "We want to share with service members and their families about the progress we've made to find solutions that work," said. Dr. S. Ward Casscells, assistant secretary of defense for Health Affairs.  "We want to hear from you directly, so please join us online on November 19."   The online event will feature a live Web discussion with senior leadership and subject matter experts on warrior and family and veterans issues. It will provide participants with the opportunity to interact with an array of service members and families who have been touched by warrior care.    Town hall participants may submit questions starting today (Nov. 14) and throughout the live program on Nov. 19. Send your questions to mhswebcontent@tma.osd.mil. Click here to obtain instructions on how to participate in the event. For privacy reasons, we ask that participants limit discussions to broad issues and lessons learned, and to not disclose personal information. When possible, service members should contact their chain of command to resolve issues.
