Yakima, WASH.--Both young and older veterans came together Saturday for the Annual Veterans Stand Down and Benefits Fair.
Over 70 service providers offered veterans employment assistance, medical screenings, clothing and hair cuts.
Members of The Yakima Valley Veterans Coalition said the event is all about getting service men and women the benefits they're entitled to.
"We have a lot of our young veterans that are coming back, and they don't naturally always seek help," said David Brown, a member of the Yakima County Veterans Program. "There's help for them here in the community."
Brown said last year they provided around 800 veterans with services. This year, they said they've helped even more.
