MEDFORD, Ore. — For the first time in the state's history, the Veteran Benefit Expo will come to Southern Oregon, according to the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA). The event will come to the Medford Armory starting 9 a.m. on July 28.

The 2018 Veteran Benefit Expo is set to feature over 65 booths—including state and federal service proiders, nonprofit agencies, employers and other local partners. The event is free, and "promises to bring together the best benefits, resources and programs Oregon has to offer veterans and their families," said a VA statement.

According to the VA, those booths at the Expo cover a variety of benefit areas, including health care, claims assistance, finance, home loans, long-term care, mental health, education, business and recreation. The event will also include a Veteran Career Fair and Veteran Trade Show, showcasing veteran-owned businesses and entrepreneurs.

The annual Expo is organized by the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs and is hosted in different locations throughout the state. This year it will be presented in partnership with the Oregon lottery.

“The Veteran Benefit Expo was created with the intention of going to a new location each year, and it’s our privilege to bring it to southern Oregon for the first time this summer,” said ODVA Acting Director Mitch Sparks. “The southern Oregon veteran community has an incredible network of dedicated service officers and resource providers, and we’re honored to be able to join in and do what we can to support that great work.”

There are currently still openings for employers interested in participating in the career fair, or for veteran-owned businesses interested in the trade show. Contact Tyler Francke at 503-373-2389 or tyler.francke@state.or.us for more information.
