ROSEBURG, Oregon – Student veterans at Umpqua Community College (UCC) are creating an event to honor their fellow brothers and sisters who served in our country’s military. They are hosting a Veterans Resource Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 11. The event will be held in the LaVerne Murphy Student Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

During the three-hour event, a variety of resources will be available to help local veterans:

  • Oregon Employment Department
  • Umpqua Community Action Network (UCAN)
  • Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH)
  • Valiant Seed
  • Mental health services
  • Chaplain
  • Educational resources
  • And more…

In addition to providing resources, Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Umpqua Valley Chapter 805 is bringing its Vietnam Veterans Memorial Traveling Wall to campus. The Wall will be on display Wednesday, Oct. 11 through Friday, Oct. 13. It will be located outside of the Bonnie J. Ford Health, Nursing, and Science Center located on the main UCC campus. The public is invited to visit during business hours.

“I am excited to be a part of this event,” Gerald Ryan, a military veteran and UCC student, said. “The names on this (wall) are the men and women who have made veterans care and benefits the way they are today.”

Ryan is helping to organize this event. He is this year’s Veterans of UCC Club president.
