SUPERIOR, WI – Veterans were honored at the sixth annual Veterans Expo at UW-Superior Tuesday night.
This event was free, and organizers say it’s an annual resource, benefit and education fair for Superior, Douglas County, and Duluth area veterans and their families.
Remarks were made by the Superior Mayor, Douglas County Board Chair, and the UWS Chancellor, and the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Veteran Affairs conducted the keynote address.
A number of local politicians were there as well.
“When veterans and their families are thriving, when you can thrive in our communities, that means our communities are strong. It is a large and wonderful world that we have here in Wisconsin. Veterans are a part of everything that we do in our lives,” Sen. Janet Bewley, (D) District 25, said.
Organizers say over 60 local, state and federal agencies that serve veterans and others were in attendance.
