(Neb)-CSC Hosting Stand Down For All Vets Plus VA Town Hall Meeting Listen
CHADRON - The veterans services offices of Dawes County and Chadron State College are joining forces for a Veterans Stand Down Wednesday from 10-2:00 in the CSC Student Center Ballroom, followed by a Town Hall meeting about 2:30 with VA Black Hills Healthcare System head Sandra Horsman.
County Veterans Services Officer Justin Bates says a Stand Down is essentially an open house with representatives of a variety of agencies and programs - local, state, and federal - helping veterans and their families.
CSC Coordinator of Veterans Affairs Scot Mullis says most Stand Downs are aimed at homeless vets but this is for all veterans and their families.
Bates says all local veterans may want to attend the Town Hall session after the Stand Down because he expects Horstmann to give an update on the status of the Hot Springs VA Center...where approval for closure granted in 2016 was rescinded last year when a review of all VA facilities in the country was ordered.
Bates and Mullis says all veterans coming to the Stand Down need to remember to bring all needed paperwork, especially the DD-214...although Bates says he'll have copies of the form available for those who need it.
