The Borough President partnered with VA New York Harbor Healthcare System to present the fair, which featured health services and enrollment, mental health support, benefit enrollment stations and claim status checks, legal support, GI Bill information, home loan information, National Cemetery Administration information and other helpful resources.
There were several workshops at the fair, including resume writing, vocational rehabilitation, cemetery administration and benefits.
"For many veterans a resource fair like this is the first step to getting them connected to benefits they have earned," said Borough President Oddo. "Hosting this fair is the least we can do to thank veterans for their service to our country."
