Veterans in Mexico- Q&A

I recently interviewed Commander Butler from the American Legion No. 7 in Chapala to talk about U.S. veterans living in Mexico and the services available to them.

In my interview we discussed:

  • Events at the American Legion
  • How you can get a membership
  • Membership benefits
  • Other Veteran Resources you can access while living in Mexico
  • Healthcare access to Veterans in Mexico
  • Why Commander Butler chose Lake Chapala
  • How many veterans live in Mexico
  • His cost of living
  • And general Q&A from the audience

If you’re a veteran and are thinking of moving to Mexico, this is a great live stream to watch.

      Sorry Michael I don’t know about veteran services in Hermosillo.
      I would recommend getting in touch with the American Legion in Lake Chapala and asking them if they know of any legions in Hermosillo
