SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Sioux Falls Community Action for Veterans is connecting KELOLAND businesses and groups that want to help those who’ve served our country in the military.
“CAV” is hosting a coalition meeting Wednesday at Active Generations with a variety of speakers. Paul Weckman is the Director of Veteran and Military Services for Sanford Health. He’s also a Veteran who served 26 years in the Navy. He says bringing everyone together creates better communication which leads to more opportunities for local Vets.
“Today, the Community Action For Veterans organization is getting together. It’s just another way that we do community outreach to Veterans to help them with a variety of different things. Today, we’ll be focusing on maybe transitioning from active duty, the guard or reserve into the civilian workforce,” Weckman said.
The second half of the meeting includes time for networking and sharing current Veteran and military family initiatives.
