Community & Veteran Wellness and Resource Fair
Galloway, N.J. – In partnership with the Wilmington Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Delaware, Stockton’s University Military & Veteran Success Center is hosting the second annual Community & Veteran Wellness and Resource Fair on Wednesday, Nov. 1, in the Campus Center.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., resources and information for veterans and/or their dependents will be available from multiple state, county, federal and non-profit organizations, including the Department of Veterans Affairs – PACT Act, Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and the Department of Labor.
Galloway, N.J. — Dallin Matthews must make some major life decisions soon.
The 30-year-old has spent about the last six years as a firefighter in the U.S. Coast Guard stationed in Cape May, but injuries from the job have forced him to “redesign” his life.
“Soon I will be getting out of the military, and I needed guidance for education and the future of my family,” said the Utah native while holding the hands of his 2-year-old son, Raylan, and his wife, Samantha.
Matthews said he’s feeling more optimistic since stopping at Stockton University’s new Community and Veteran Wellness and Resource Fair on March 16.
The inaugural event is a partnership with Stockton’s Military and Veteran Success Center and the Wilmington Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Delaware to bring together 75 vendors in one place in the university’s Campus Center Event Room.
