Stand Down event offers services for veterans

WENATCHEE — A North Central Washington All Veteran Stand Down will be held Sept. 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wenatchee National Guard Armory, 1230 Fifth St.

To receive aid, veterans should bring proof of service, specifically their DD-214, a certificate of discharge, if they have it available.

The Stand Down is sanctioned by the Veterans Administration and is supported by NCW Vets Serving Vets and other community services.
