WARRENSBURG, MO (Oct. 10, 2014) – All United States military veterans and interested members of the public are invited to attend U.S. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler’s 2014 Veterans Summit Monday, Oct. 20 at the University of Central Missouri. This free program takes place from 9 a.m. to noon in Room 240 of the Elliott Student Union.

“The goal of the Veterans Summit is to provide veterans with timely information on issues they care about such as how to overcome the challenges of reintegration after deployment, strengthening the family, and succeeding in the workplace while connecting veterans with the many resources they have earned and deserve,” said Congresswoman Hartzler.

Three panel discussions featuring experts in a variety of fields related to veterans are planned for the event. They will feature discussion about personal, emotional, spiritual, family and career issues faced by returning veterans; continuing education and career opportunities for returning veterans and the perspective from a public school administrator; and discussion about Veterans Administration health care and benefits, the Missouri Veterans Commission, and resources available through public and private veterans’ service organizations.

In addition to panel discussions, individuals attending the Summit have an opportunity to stop by resource tables and visit with representatives of numerous organizations that serve veterans.

To learn more about the Summit, please visit online, or contact Congresswoman Hartzler’s Columbia, Mo., office at 573-442-9311 or 573-645-9625.
