The Gazette and news partner KKTV Channel 11 are providing a hotline from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, staffed by experts from the offices of U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner, to answer veterans' questions about health care.

Veterans' homelessness, health care and marijuana use were among topics tackled during a community conversation held by The Gazette with a panel of six experts Tuesday night.

The hotline phone number is 719-457-0640.

With more than 80,000 veterans in the Pikes Peak region and an unusually rich military presence, "We do have the best support in America," said U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn. "There is no one that exceeds us."

The local network of veterans' advocacy groups includes the Mount Carmel Center, Peak Military Care Network, El Pomar Foundation and Crawford House.

But no one entity can do it alone, said Kate Hatten, who as president and CEO of Peak Military Care oversees 44 partner agencies that provide specialized help to veterans.
