Expo links veterans to resources, benefits, education

The University of Wisconsin-Superior and Douglas County will host the sixth annual free Veterans Expo from 3-7 p.m. April 23 in the Yellowjacket Union Great Room.

This free event is an annual resource, benefit and education fair for Superior, Douglas County and Duluth area veterans and their families. More than 60 local, state and federal agencies that serve veterans and others will be in attendance.

"There are services available to all veterans, from those still serving to the veterans who have been retired for many years," said Monte Stewart, coordinator of UWS' Veteran and Non-traditional Student Services Center. "If you're looking to get connected to the veteran community in the Twin Ports region, this event is the way to accomplish that."

Free refreshments and parking will be available. Nonperishable food donations for the Yellowjacket Food Pantry will be accepted.

Contact the VNSC at 715-394-8406 or vnsc@uwsuper.edu for more information. The Yellowjacket Union is located at 1605 Catlin Ave.
