Veterans and their families traveled to Lawrenceville on Aug. 22 to visit the Gwinnett County Veterans Resource Center to learn what services are available. An open house was held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., with a luncheon with U.S. Congressman Rob Woodall invited to attend.
Jeri Diehl, director of the Resource Center, and Corene D. Smith, executive director of the Success to Succeed Foundation, explained the purpose of the Veterans Resource Center. All military veterans and their family members have access to the latest information available on:
- Disability claims
- Continuing Education programs
The Veterans Resource Center also will offer subject specific programs available on an event-by-event basis.
