N. Ilinois Veterans and Military Families Invited to Unique Benefits, Resources Fair

Head's up, Northern Illinois.

All current and/or former members of the military; military family members; representatives or members of a veterans service organization; service or resource providers of any sort or stripe whose work includes supporting military/veteran clients; student veterans; and interested supporters are invited to attend a special Benefits/Informational Fair next week.

niuvets2009_0523Organized not by the VA or other such entity, but rather by members of the NIU Veterans Club for their fellow area battle buddies, the first such campus gathering is set to offer the typical and atypical.

This weekend, I received a lively update on preparations from club Vice President and key event coordinator, Aaron Stahly.

"It's going to be special," Stahly said. "We're trying to make it a little more fun and useful than the usual benefits fair people are familiar with."

I'm impressed with what they're putting together for the community, which includes outlying areas west of Chicago, greater DeKalb and Rockford, Illinois.
