Veterans and their families are invited to the spring 2019 Veterans Stand Down, which takes place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at the Sheridan Park Community Center, 680 Lebo Ave. in Bremerton.

Complimentary services for veterans - women, men and their families - will be available including free dental screening, clothing, hot meals, food and hygiene items and haircuts; a separate women's circle; housing, employment and legal assistance; education and training services; resources for emergency shelter and social services; and more.

This event is open to Kitsap County veterans and their immediate families only.
