|Veteran's Resource Meeting in Salem on Friday
The Salem Area Veteran Resource monthly meeting will be held Friday, 18 September at 12:15 in the Winema building on Chemeketa Community College campus 4001 Winema Place, room 102.
Anyone who provides any kind of service to veterans is invited to attend. Special guest speaker will be SFC Phil Maas from the Oregon Army National Guard Yellow Ribbon Program.
Past speakers have been post 9/11 GI Bill Chapter 33 program specialist CW3 Diane Beach, National Guard Family Program Director, Michele Kochosky, and Maria Mondragon, Portland VA Minority program.
The meeting is held every third Friday at 12:30 on the Chemeketa Campus. The purpose of the meeting is to inform services providers of all services in the Salem area so each provider can become a one-stop information center for all services including family support issues, education issues, physical and Mental health issues, employment issues and many other areas.
Currently ten percent of Oregon's population are military veterans' and is one of only three states without a major military installation.
This resource meeting, along with the Tigard resource meeting addressing these issues in the Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas County, and the Vet Net meetings in Eugene, allows the enormous amount of information and resources in the community, to get to those who need it.
New attendees are given a chance to speak about their programs and offerings to veterans. After the meeting there is time to network with other attendees.
