Piedmont Virginia Community College held its first Veterans Resource Fair Tuesday. The event gave PVCC students who are also veterans a chance to network with organizations and learn more about resources available to them.
One student says having outside support makes it easier to transition back into civilian life.
"For a veteran it's coming as a change to be back in school, so it's very important to not be only involved in an environment where you have that support system from others who understand where you're coming from, but also just to help with the adjustment in general,” said Jenny Zheng Marren, PVCC student and veteran.
The Department of Veterans Services and the Red Cross were among the organizations who participated. PVCC hopes to make this an annual event.
