U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis is hosting his annual Veterans Resource Fair on March 14.
The three-hour event at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey will provide information, resources and services to veterans and their families.
“Veterans have given so much to our country — it is only right that we give back,” Bilirakis said. “I am proud to host our ninth annual Veterans Resource Fair. This event will be a one-stop shop for our veterans, providing them with access to a variety of available services and resources. These services include medical care, assistance with their disability claims or education benefits, and employment information.”
The resource fair runs from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. After the fair, Bilirakis and retired U.S. Navy Commander Frank Wuco will host vets and their families for what they’re calling a “patriotic program.”
It will feature a performance by the Hudson Middle School Jazz band and a talk by a former member of an anti-communist teen group, Eddie Ko. Ko was a member of the Student Volunteer Army headed by a South Korean officer. During the Korean war Ko gathered information on the North Korean Army and reported back to the U.S. armed forces.
