Vet Expo puts veterans in touch with available services

By WKTV News

When deployed veterans return home, they find that time doesn't stand still; there's an adjustment period to coming home.

Events like Wednesday's veterans expo in the SUNYIT gym help.

"It helps me get places that I haven't been before. I've always thought I wouldn't go to college but he's got me registered for several colleges so that's a good thing," says Air Force Veteran James Beacraft.

The expo puts veterans in touch with various services available to them, including employment assistance and counseling. The event also offers free cleaning and hygiene items for veterans.

The expo is not only for returning veterans; veterans of the Korean Conflict and Vietnam War were at SUNYIT Wednesday.
