Vets Rock: Vet support event at Mohegan Sun

 

(WTNH)— Til Duty is Done, Mohegan Sun, and WTNH are teaming up to bring Vets Rock. Vets Rock is a day dedicated to our veterans. Vets Rocks is a day to make a difference by providing our veterans with valuable resources, along with world-class entertainment to celebrate Veterans Day. A day to provide one location for our veterans to come to seek employment, gather professional attire, seek the local services that are available, and enjoy a great concert. Some of the great features include Drop Kick Murphys and Tony Orlando!

The event will take place Wednesday, November 11th   7:30pm

The event is promoted by Til Duty Is Done, which provides temporary supportive housing for veterans while they transition to civilian careers. Justin Nash, the Executive Director of Til Duty is Done says it is important to streamline the process of hiring because veterans sometimes struggle from going from a structured way of life to a less structured way of life.

The event is also connected to Work Vessels for Vets. It is an organization that equips vets who are aspiring to be entrepreneurs. Vets often have a hard time getting the appropriate resources to start their business. Work Vessels for Vets often gives laptops and other resources for vets who also want to go back to school.

There are other vet support organizations, including a hiring fair, that will be in attendance at the Vets Rock event.
