A free dinner will be served beginning at 5 p.m. and there will be time to visit numerous vendors who provide services or discounts for veterans. The program will begin at 6:45 p.m.

The forum is the fourth in a series sponsored by Commissioner Williams. Previous forums have included topics on recovery, suicide prevention, and the intersection of criminal justice and mental health.
