COVID-19 Update: Letter to our valued Veterans, Sponsors and Partners

To our beloved Veterans, their families, and the Southern California Community,

During this extraordinary time of challenge and uncertainty, it is vital that you know you are not alone.  You will not be forgotten, and you will not be overlooked.  COVID-19 and the world’s response to its outbreak has been and will continue to be unprecedented.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who may be impacted by this terrible situation.  As a community, we will come together, we will support one another, and we will overcome.

Despite all the impacts we currently face, we want to assure you that the SoCal Vet Expo leadership team and its amazing group of dedicated partners will continue to oversee and manage this important event.  Having the broad range of employers and resources we have assembled has never been more crucial than it is now, as we face what may be the most turbulent economic period in our lifetimes.  The dedication and commitment from our valuable partners, sponsors, and vendors is unwavering.

We have been making a profound impact in Southern California communities, and we will continue to do so today and into the future.  We may have to delay the date of our Expo due to the challenges our nation and the world face, as we attempt to curtail the spread of Covid-19.  You can rest assured that our tenacity and resolve have never been stronger or more relevant.

You have our commitment, and we got your back!

To our business & political leaders and public & private organizations,

Help us get our veterans and the community at-large back on their feet and support the SoCal Veterans Expo this year.  Our dedication and resolve as a nation proves we have what it takes to overcome today’s daunting situation, just as we have successfully navigated through challenging times in the past.

Our veterans and their families have weathered many storms.  They are likely to experience an increased level of anxiety and concern, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.  It is time we come together and support them during this crisis.  We will endure by continuing to work together and helping those in need with your organizational, financial, and in-kind support.

Our veterans and their families deserve nothing less!
