    The Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) will hold its annual Veterans Stand Down this month. Stand Down has been an a signature outreach event to support Veterans for nearly three decades and this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event combines online benefits presentations and for the first time, regional resource access sites.   
     Stand Down 2020 will be a two-day event.  Day one on Thursday, September 24th will begin with a kickoff ceremony at 9:00am at the Rocky Hill Campus broadcast via social media.  Following the ceremony will be a day of virtual informational sessions including information on a variety of federal and state agencies and community service providers on topics including housing and homeless serves, State labor/employment and vocational resources, Veteran caregiver support, legal assistance, education resources and more.
     On day two, Friday, September 25th, there will be four locations throughout Connecticut, Bridgeport, Danbury, Norwich and Rocky Hill.  These locations will be staffed by representatives of the regional Vet Centers, CT Bar Association and the DVA to provide benefits information, pro-bono legal services and free COVID-19 testing and flu shots by medical professionals.  During this day, COVID mitigation protocols will be strictly enforced and only a certain number of individuals will be allowed to enter at certain scheduled times, so registration is necessary.
