Amarillo, TX -

 

Local veterans were honored with a benefit fair at the Amarillo Senior Citizens Center, Saturday.

The focus was to educate veterans about available benefits and services in our area.

Darryl Hersey, a local veteran says the fair is important, especially for men and women returning home.    

"I just remember when I came back from over seas, there was nobody there, there was no big fan fair or anything like that. So we just want to tell our veterans in the panhandle area that we appreciate them," he said. 

The fair was put together by Veterans for Veterans, Americorp Vista, CADCA Amarillo and Impact Futures. 

 

America Supports you Texas also provided lunch for those who attended.
