The O’Fallon Veteran’s Commission is hosting a Veterans Benefit Fair on Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at O’Fallon City Hall.
The event will feature workshops hosted by local businesses to help veterans and the families of veterans, according to City Councilmember Rick Battelle (Ward 3).
“We’ve got a lot of effort going forward from many companies to support our veterans that are in our community and throughout St. Charles County,” Battelle said.
Sheldon Hartsfield, Chairman of the Veteran’s Commission, said there would be four main categories of workshops at the fair: medical, employment, education and finances.
“These are the biggest issues that the younger veterans that are coming home today are facing,” Hartsfield said. “Any particular veteran needs one of those four services, at least.”
