Resource fair highlights services for veterans

The Student Veteran’s Resource Day brought together different services and organizations to kick off Veterans Week on Monday, Nov. 7.

Elizabeth Picray, who works with American Legion Post 202, said the event was successful.

“We’ve gotten some good exposure for the organization and veterans as a whole,” said Picray.

Information about volunteer opportunities at Welcome Home, Inc., a service for homeless veterans, was also available for community members interested in assisting veterans.

The event started at 9 a.m. and ran until 3 p.m. in Stotler Lounge, located on the MU campus in Memorial Union.
