Cameron kicks off Veterans Resource Fair

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - In honor of Veterans Day, Cameron University is kicking off its Veterans Resource Fair. Providing our veterans with the tools for success is the goal for the Veteran Resources Fair. This is the third time Cameron has held this event and each time it gets bigger. There are 23 vendors at the fair offering everything from information about veteran's benefits to coping with the transition to civilian life. The fair is open to veterans, active duty military, and their families. It is completely free.

We asked the fair's coordinator why they continue to hold these events. She tells us it's important to give back to veterans and all service members because they have given so much to us.

“There's such a variety of services available out there that by providing this resource fair. It's a one-stop service where they can come and visit a variety of services and find out what benefits are available to them and assist them is being and successful in their careers,” said CU Veteran Affairs Coordinator Vicki Henson.

If you missed the fair today, no worries. It runs again tomorrow from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 and again on Friday from 9:00 until 1:00 then from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m.

"We just want to invite everybody to come and join us," Henson said. "It's a great event, it's a great opportunity to get information, and it's a great opportunity to find out what benefits are offered and available to you if you're a veteran, a service member, or a dependent."  

The fair will be held on the first floor of the McMahon Centennial complex.
