The San Fernando Valley Veteran’s Family Resource Expo was held yesterday at the National Guard Armory in Van Nuys. The event was a tremendous success.
Over 60 companies, Veteran Service Organizations (including Silhouettes for VETS), and every imaginable Veteran support services attended. Each of the organizations represented was there to support and honor our Veterans and did so in a manner deserving of recognizing those who have served.
Over the course of the past few months the San Fernando Veterans Committee planed this event in order that each of our Veterans had access to the services they needed. The feedback from the Veterans in attendance was all very positive and we must recognize those who lead all the coordinating of this event.
A special thanks to Alex Letterson, EDD and Amity Anderson, President of the SFV Veterans Committee who along with the all the Board Members had everything in place to serve the over 300 Veterans and their families who attended.
I would further like to recognize the partnerships of The Salvation Army Haven and Linda Broughton, Volunteers of America and Kelly Logan that have assisted Silhouettes for VETS growth over the past 6 months. Linda and Kelly should also be commended for the work in organizing this event.
There are many other who participated in making the San Fernando Valley Veteran’s Family Expo an event that is a one of a kind success – so to all that worked to make this success – thank you.
Silhouettes for VETS is proud to be a part of this most successful event. Over 20 Veteran’s signed up to the Coaching Services of Silhouettes for VETS. And in attendance were seven Veterans who are currently being coach by the team at Silhouettes for VETS.
Silhouettes for VETS is looking forward to Coaching each of these Veterans in order that we can decrease the Veteran unemployment – one Veteran at a time.
