Lincoln to Bring "Veterans and Citizen Soldiers" Tour to Wynne

WASHINGTON (KAIT) - U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas will honor Arkansas' service members during her statewide Veterans and Citizen Soldiers Tour on the Congressional Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29.  Lincoln will meet with veterans, National Guard and Reserve members and their families, and other Arkansans to discuss "the need to improve health care and other services for veterans and enhance benefits for our nation's citizen soldiers."

The tour will begin on Tuesday, May 27 in Warren, and will continue through May 29 in Wynne, the only northeast Arkansas appearance for the event.  The Wynne event will be a "Veterans and National Guard issues meeting," set for 2 p.m. at the Technology Center for the Delta at 1790 North Falls Blvd.
