ROCHESTER, Minn. - Area veterans had the chance to come to the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans' Stand Down event at Kahler Apache, a resource fair for veterans.

Veterans could have their hair cut for free, meet with local employers, and be connected to other resources and benefits in the area.

There was also a welcome ceremony honoring the flag and a free meal.

"If you tried to hunt them down on your own, all of these events like this, it consolidates things, makes it a lot easier to be able to search through your options," explains Eyota veteran Aaron Bigalk. He served in the Marine Corps from 2003-2007.
