ADA, OK -- Dozens of organizations and job employers gathered at ECU to help veterans and military servicemen.

The Veteran's Upward Bound Program hosted their first Veterans and Military Resource Roundup on campus.

Many people came out to gather information about different services, jobs, and resources available to them and their families.

Program Director, Mary Meeks, says this type of event is beneficial to helping those in the military make the transition to civilian life.

"We bring the resources to them," Meeks said. "Sometimes going out to ask a question or find a resources is a little challenging on your own, but this is an opportunity that we bring those resources together to make it easy in one location."

The event lasted until 3PM Monday. Meeks says she hopes they can host similar events in the near future.
