The state Department of Veterans Affairs annual Veterans Stand Down event wraps up today. The outreach initiative has been held for nearly three decades.  This year combined two days of online benefits presentations and a day with five regional in-person Veteran resource access sites, including Danbury. Informational sessions covered a variety of topics including housing and homeless services, State labor/employment and vocational resources, caregiver support, legal assistance, education resources and others.  Five in–person service locations throughout the State, including at the Danbury War Memorial, will take place from 8am-2pm.  They will be staffed by representatives of the regional Vet Centers, CT Bar Association, the DVA and Veteran Service Organizations, along with community based providers. Veterans can get benefits information, pro-bono legal services and free COVID-19 testing, vaccines and flu shots.
