With the end of the Iraq war, America is going to see an influx of returning veterans. The Vets Center in Bend is planning for the men and women who may be coming into their facility looking for help as they transition back to civilian life. Gary Hunter is the Director of the Veterans Center. “And I think people realize we have two million veterans coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq. I do know the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs does a good job letting veterans knew what's available. They have a disk that is sent to veterans discharged to try and steer them in the right direction.” The Veterans Center opened summer of 2010 at a downtown location and moved to its new location near Worksource Oregon off of Greenwood in February.
