“I am proud to host our second annual Veterans Resource Fair. I remain committed to expanding the scope of services provided each year to adequately address the various challenges facing our service men and women when they return home,” Sewell said. “Bringing these resources to our local veterans is a small way of thanking them for their selfless service to this nation.”
