If you're a military service member coming back for the first time or a seasoned veteran, there's a special expo next week that you won't want to miss.  It will definitely be a benefit to you.

Third District Republican Representative Jon Runyan is hosting a Veterans Expo this Monday night at the Toms River American Legion Post 129 on Church Road.  Often times, veterans have no place to go for valuable information they need on a variety of topics and issues.  The expo hopes to cut through the confusion and provide a road map for the brave service men and women who give so much in the name of our freedom.

Congressman Runyan says "this will help everyone get the answers they need.  We cut through the bureaucratic red tape and make things happen.  We have so many organizations attending and they'll all be under one roof to answer whatever you have on your mind."

Some of the organizations scheduled to attend include:
Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Office

New Jersey Department of Military & Veterans Affairs

New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development- Veterans Workforce Placement

Ocean County Department of Veterans Affairs

9th District Legislative Office

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve

Various  veterans service groups

The expo runs from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
