Congressman Brian Mast is opening a new office inside the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center and he's sharing it with other representatives from our area.
Republican Mast says Democrat Congressmen Ted Deutch, Alcee Hastings and Lois Frankel will also use the office.
His staff says he hopes the bipartisan effort will show veterans they're paying attention.
Mast is a veteran and double-amputee and he says every time he walks into the VA, several fellow veterans come up and want to be heard. He hopes the office helps improve the care they get at the facility.
According to Mast, it’s the first time in the U.S. that members of Congress will be holding office hours in a VA facility.
