6th West Metro Veterans Fair

6th West Metro Veterans Fair in Lakewood, Colorado

WWII Veteran Maurice L. Howland

The 6th West Metro Veterans Fair, once again, provided our veterans with a one stop information and services available to veterans.  WWII Veteran Maurice L. Howland, who attended the fair, will be 95 this January.  Since the 6th West Metro Veterans Fair is focused on our veterans well-being and health, the face of Mr. Howland and all of our veterans are important reminders why this non-profit informational fair is so significant .  With the information and help for our veterans and their families found at this event, the intention is for all of our veterans to celebrate their 95th birthday, and beyond.
