Vet Fair on jobs, education, benefits

An East Bay Veterans Fair 2007 being held Saturday, June 2, will focus on helping veterans in three vital areas: employment, education and VA benefits. Representatives will provide employment assistance such as help with resume writing, interviewing and relating military skills and experience to civilian employment. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs specialists will assist with healthcare, disability compensation, readjustment counseling and cemetery benefits.

The event takes place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle in Concord. It will also have specialists in Zen meditation, chaplain prayer groups, yoga, tai chi and massage therapy. Blue Star Moms will conduct a "Drop Zone" to collect items for care packages to be sent to our troops overseas.
