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”.
