SAN BERNARDINO, CA – Assemblyman Marc Steinorth (R-Rancho Cucamonga) held a Veterans Resource Fair last week that brought more than 500 military veterans who were seeking assistance with issues such as healthcare, education, housing services, and other benefits available to them to this event.
“We have many men and women here in our local communities that have given so much to our country, and I am honored to host events like this resource fair that help improve their quality of life,” said Assemblyman Steinorth. “I plan to do all that I can as their state representative to assure they receive the services they deserve.”
The San Bernardino County Department of Veterans Affairs issued 275 veteran ID cards at the 4 hour event, more than they normally issue in a month. These ID cards will provide local veterans with benefits such as discounts on products and services. Numerous other government and private agencies were also on-hand to answer questions, solve concerns and offer benefit information.
“I want to thank Assemblyman Steinorth for hosting this event and for all of his efforts to make sure our local veterans are cared for,” said Rhoda Rhoades, Service Supervisor for the San Bernardino County Department of Veterans Affairs. “This event saw the biggest turnout we have ever had for such an event in our region. Many local veterans and their families will greatly benefit from what they learned at this event.”
