Lock Haven University held a Veterans Expo yesterday at the student recreation center on campus. This was a chance for veterans to register for DD214s (discharge documents), and get free blood pressure and glucose screenings. There were door prizes, refreshments and a presentation of colors, with an LHU student, junior Patricia Barth, singing the National Anthem. A table was set up to make cards to send to soldiers and veterans and it was a big hit among the students. The goal was to help provide important information to veterans who need help finding out about benefits available to them.
