Dear Neighbors,

The Connecticut Department of Veterans’ Affairs is hosting their annual “Stand Down” event for veterans on September 20, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the main campus of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs located at 287 West Street in Rocky Hill.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the veterans in our community to receive free employment and job training guidance. More than 30 government agencies and social services organizations will be offering education and recovery-based services, as well as information about an array of benefits available to veterans. Medical, dental, eye care, hearing and mental health screenings – as well as free clothing – will also be provided.

Pre-registration is not required, but the DOL asks that attendees arrive no later than 12:00 p.m. with documentation verifying your military service/veteran status.

If you are in need of transportation to the event, please know that the Department of Transportation is providing free bus services from a number of locations around the state.

For more information, please call 860-616-3803. Click here for a state-wide transportation schedule.
