Save the date!  Plan to attend the Yakima Valley Veteran’s Coalition Stand Down and Benefits Fair on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at the Washington Army National Guard Armory located at 2501 Airport Lane in
Yakima from 9 AM to 3 PM.  This is a chance to meet with other veterans, have a cup of coffee and a meal together (lunch will be served), and to get plugged into services specifically for veterans.  Services include employment assistance, VA hospital enrollment, medical screening, community services, PTSD counseling, disability claims, haircuts, and clothing.  If you are a veteran or just want to thank a veteran, the coalition accepts financial donations to help sponsor the event.  Also you can thank a vet by making sure they get to the Stand Down on October 27.
