Bob Goodlatte: Connecting veterans with resources

bob goodlatte veteransIt’s not enough to say “thank you” just one day each year. Every day is an opportunity to remember those who have stood guard on distant battlefields and here at home to protect the liberties at the core of the United States. We owe them a deep debt of gratitude and our sincerest respect.

Meeting these veterans and hearing their stories is one of the highlights of my stops around the Sixth District. Our part of the Commonwealth is home to thousands of men and women who have bravely served. For some, their years in the military seem almost a lifetime ago. Others are making the transition to civilian life now. Some have visible wounds and some carry wounds that cannot be seen. While no veteran’s experience is the same, there is one thing they share: they have all made countless sacrifices so that we could live freely under the Stars and Stripes.

I will host a Veterans’ Resource Fair on Thursday, February 18th, from 10AM-12PMat the Thomas D. Howie Memorial Armory in Gypsy Hill Park located at 500 Thornrose Avenue in Staunton. This fair is for the benefit of all veterans to help better connect them to the many programs and services available in our region, including education, health care, employment, and housing resources. Anyone with an interest in veterans’ issues is welcome to attend. If you have any questions about the Fair, or know of an organization interested in hosting a table, please contact my office at 540-857-2672.

I humbly thank those who have worn the uniform of our Armed Forces past and present. Your service is not forgotten, and I will continue working in Congress to ensure that our commitment to veterans is kept.

Bob Goodlatte represents the Sixth District of Virginia in Congress.
