The community came together to connect veterans to resources on Tuesday in Conroe.

About 120 local organizations, state agencies, and federal partners set up booths at the Lone Star Convention Center to provide a free expo for veterans from Montgomery, Walker, and Liberty counties.

The event included education representatives, career placement representatives, employers who hire veterans, veteran entreprenuership opportunities, VA eligibility and claims, VA justice outreach, legal information, medical information, on-site counseling, Reserve and National Guard components, VFW and American Legion representatives, veteran-to-veteran peers, and local veteran service organizations.

It’s the second year for the event to be held; however this year a sponsor made it possible for the event to offer free lunch as well.

Hosted by the Veterans Taskforce, Army veteran Ashley Taylor spearheaded the event. Taylor is the Veteran Services liaison with Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare.
