CHARLESTON (AP) — West Virginia's new secretary of veterans assistance will travel the state next month to listen to veterans.

Rick Thompson will open his five-stop tour on Sept. 11 in Beckley, at the Raleigh County Commission on Aging. He has scheduled other stops in Barboursville, on Sept. 12; Clarksburg, Sept. 18; Martinsburg, Sept. 19; and Moundsville, Sept. 26.

All events are open to the public.

Thompson said to successfully serve veterans, the state must understand the needs they deem most important.

Thompson is the former speaker of the House of Delegates. He was appointed head of the Department of Veterans' Assistance in June.
