McMorris Rodgers to Host 2nd Annual Veterans and Military Resource Fair

(Spokane, WA) On Saturday, May 31st, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers will host a Veterans and Military Resource fair to connect Eastern Washington veterans to the many programs, benefits, jobs and services available to them.

This year, participants can attend a resume-building workshop as well as a panel discussion about how children are affected when their mother or father deploys. There are more than 100,000 veterans in Eastern Washington. All veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.

This is McMorris Rodgers’ second Veterans and Military Resource Fair. Last August, more than 350 veterans received information and help from more than 20 veterans-related groups from across Washington State.

“I look forward to building on last year’s success in connecting our region’s veterans with the benefits and services they’ve earned,” McMorris Rodgers said. “This resource fair shows our veterans and military that that we appreciate their service to our country and want to help them have the opportunity to get services available now in our community.”

In addition, McMorris Rodgers will present the Purple Heart to David Witte. The Vietnam Veteran was hurt in September of 1968 when a mortar exploded, sending shrapnel into his back. “I can’t say enough thanks to the people who’ve helped me straighten out my service records allowing me to receive this award,” Witte said. “I have so much appreciation for them—it’s overwhelming. It’s humbling.”
