November 1, 2009 (El Cajon) -- Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) will sponsor a Veterans Resource Fair for San Diego-area veterans on November 12, 2009, in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 2275. The event is set for 2 PM to 4 PM at VFW Post 2275, located at 136 Chambers Street in El Cajon. Counselors from Veterans Affairs will be on hand to offer assistance to veterans.
"It is often said - and for good reason -- that the way we treat our veterans today determines who will step forward tomorrow to serve in America's armed forces," said Congressman Hunter. "Those who serve in the ranks of our military are bonded by a common desire to protect freedom for not just our own citizens, but for millions of others around the world. In return for this selfless service and sacrifice, our veterans deserve the highest level of attention and care."
