Central Oregon Veterans now have a new place to go for challenges like post traumatic stress disorder and other issues facing returning soldiers. A new Veterans Center on Bend's east side held its grand opening today. U.S. Senator Ron Wyden was at today's ceremony: “The contribution of the veterans is what this is all about; this vets center is going to make a difference to the soldiers and the families. If we've learned anything since the Vietnam war its that the people we send to war come back to their families, their jobs and their communities with a unique set of challenges. We didn't get it right back in those days and that's why its so important we get it right this time.” He says many local vets and community leaders helped make this "one stop shop" become a reality. The Vets Center is on northeast Forbes Road.
