EDWARDSVILLE – Working to bring state services and resources to Metro East veterans, State Senator Bill Haine (D–Alton) and Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) will host a veterans fair from 1 to 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 15, at Edwardsville American Legion Post #199.
“There are many veterans services available but it can be difficult to navigate them all. We want to bring these programs and organizations together under one roof to better serve our veterans,” Haine said.
““This is a streamlined opportunity for veterans to ask questions, get resources and explore career paths. We want to ensure veterans can access the benefits they have earned though their service to our country,” Beiser added.
The fair is aimed to provide career and educational opportunities for former service members as well as care and benefit information from public and private programs.
