Reintegration and Homecoming: Welcoming Warriors and Saluting Service

The Fourth Annual Veterans Conference is helping veterans reconnect and establish a role in the community by introducing speakers and panelists in law, health, and employment. The conference will allow veterans, attorneys, and the community to learn about the unique skills possessed by veterans and how these skills can be used to create a successful transition into the civilian world.

The Conference will feature speakers and panelists in law, health, and employment.  For nonmilitary attendees, there is a fee to attend the conference, and space is limited.  Breakfast will be provided for individuals who register in advance.
