Pahrump veterans should plan to attend the Veterans Festival this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the ballroom at the Pahrump Nugget with their families.
The event is sponsored in large part by Humana, which employs many veterans.
“It’s not about insurance,” says Dean Taylor, president of Pro Expo. “These events are organized so that families of veterans can meet providers who specialize in health, education, finance, etc. Without Humana, the festivals would not take place at all.
There is much to learn about the services and benefits available to veterans and their families in civilian life.
The theme of this festival is “Happy Birthday to the US Army”. This weekend is the 247th anniversary of the US military.
This festival is an opportunity for veterans to learn more about the many resources, benefits, products and services available to them from local and national organizations. Vendors represent community service providers, VA benefit organizations, nonprofits, and local businesses. “With over 30 local veterans service organizations on hand participating in the Expo, we have done our best to ensure that this Expo will be the best veteran-related event in Southern Nevada.”
Suppliers and representatives include, but are not limited to: GND 186 Marine Corps, ADT Security Services, Aetna Medicare, Alignment Health, American Legion Post 76, Caption Call, Captel Outreach, Davis Funeral Home, Grand Canyon University, Las Vegas Vet Center, Medicare Assistance Program, Medicare Resource Center, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Nathan Adelson Hospice, Nevada Department of Aging and Disability, Nevada Department Veterans Services, RLC Veterans Assistance, The Medicare Store, VA Southern Nevada Healthcare, Veterans Reporter News and Vietnam Veterans Chapter 17.
“Only dedication to our veterans will ensure they receive all the benefits and services they deserve,” Taylor said.
Live entertainment will be provided by Pahrump’s husband-and-wife acoustic duo “The Perfect Fit.” They hail from New York City and will perform covers of music from the 50s through today with their own signature style from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
