More than 2 million veterans reside in the state of California, half of those live right here in Southern California.  Yesterday, veterans affairs was the topic of a three-person panel discussion hosted at SCPR’s Crawford Family Forum.

The panel members were; Dr. Anthony Hassan, director of the USC Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans and Military Families , Elizabeth Heger, executive director of the Soldiers Project, and Joseph Costello, a retired service member who now serves as the team leader at the San Marcos Vet Center.
