Rep. Karen Boback, in conjunction with Misericordia University and several local veterans' organizations, is sponsoring her annual Veterans Recognition Event to be held at 11 a.m. on Nov. 3 at Misericordia University's Lemmond Theatre in the Walsh Auditorium. There will also be a Veterans Expo with local agencies and organizations offering information to support veterans. Refreshments will be served. The Department of Veterans Affairs' mobile veterans center will be on hand and free blood pressure checks and stroke prevention screenings will be given. The event is an opportunity for local students to interact with local veterans who served in combat from World War II to the present. The free event is open to non-combat veterans and those who were deployed during times of war.
