TYLER, TX (KLTV) - On Monday, Mayor Barbara Bass introduced members of the Veterans Round Table established in Smith County.  The round table is targeted to organize and recognize the issues and services needed to help local veterans. 

Some of the issues that need to be addressed include employment, education, housing, and medical and mental health issues. As of right now there is not a facility in the local area to accommodate the needs of these veterans, the closest locations include Dallas and Shreveport. 

The veterans roundtable hopes to help veterans returning from wars to get the help they need to get educated, jobs and healthcare they need to lead a successful and happy life.
