Veterans Health and Wellness Foundation (VHWF) will be hosting a Veterans Health, Wellness and Information EXPO on November 5th in Silver Spring from 10:00 - 2:00 PM.
This Resource Fair event, in honor of Veterans Day, recognizes the service and sacrifice of all veterans by collaborating with local government, nonprofit organizations, and employers (hiring Veterans) to provide critical resources. DC, Maryland, and Virginia employment and education officials will be in attendance, as well as several nonprofits offering veterans services. The resources include job recruiting, information on benefits, recreational therapy, PTSD services, and much more.
Fun – Connection – Community are the objectives of Vets Nite. The goal is to create a space where veterans of all ages can meetup, have fun, find Battle Buddies, be with fellow veterans of all ages. Throw axes, play ping pong and toss bean bags at corn hole, a shooting range simulator – just hang out with other vets and have fun, make friends, create connections and community. This is part of the mission of our nonprofit, Veterans & Homefront Voices. Along with inviting veterans in the workforce, we have invited student veterans enrolled in local universities up to enlisting WWII vets who are able and willing to join in.
All active duty, veterans, and family members are welcome to join in on the fun at the Patriot Pride and Exhibition Fair!
