Young Veterans Sought To Spread Word About Upcoming Information Fair

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Organizers of a Veterans Information Fair, to be held in the fall of 2007, are seeking Veterans who have served since the Vietnam War up to and including Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

“We need younger veterans to help us older Veterans in getting the word out about VA benefits that are not being accessed by these newer generations,” said Frank Smart, chairperson of the event.

Smart continues by saying,We need to put a ‘young face´ on this event. We need these younger generations of veterans to become active in our organizations to keep them alive for future generations.”

An organizational meeting will be held Saturday, March 24, at 10am, at the Veterans Hall in downtown Sonora. Smart says that while the emphasis will be on the younger men and women, veterans of all eras are encouraged to attend. For more information, you can contact Smart at 209-533-4414.
