SARASOTA, Fla. – Congressman Vern Buchanan held a Veterans Appreciation Fair at Sarasota Military Academy Saturday morning.

The fair brought together resources for veterans and provided them with useful information in an easy to reach format. On hand was the V.A. as well as the Sarasota County Health Department providing health screenings for veterans. Career Source Suncoast also assisted the veterans with information about employment program.

Buchanan said “In the two counties, Sarasota and Manatee, there are 90,000 veterans. So instead of them having to run to St. Pete, we bring Bay Pines Hospital here”.

The congressman said it is important for veterans to get the assistance they need to ensure they get the health care and benefits they have earned.
