U.S. Congressman Greg Pence, a Republican representing Indiana’s Sixth Congressional District, announced the formation of the Sixth District Veterans Advisory Board and hosted its first meeting on Monday. The board is comprised of veterans within the district and those who serve as leaders on veterans issues.
