The goal of the Veteran Resource Day is to connect area military veterans with a variety of agencies who offer programs and assistance to veterans and their families.
The event is free to all military veterans. About 20 agencies are expected to participate in the event.
Among the agencies expected to participate in the event are representatives from the Jefferson County Tax Assessor’s Office, Priority Veteran of United Way of Central Alabama, Cooper Green Office of Veterans Affairs, the Armed Forces Services Corporation and a host of others.
This event, just a day prior to the nation’s annual Veteran’s Day Celebration, is another way for the city of Bessemer to say “Thank You” for your service, said Mayor Kenneth E. Gulley.
The event is being organized by the city of Bessemer’s Community and Economic Development Department.
