On September 18th and 19th, the Smith River Rancheria hosted the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Training Summit at the Lucky 7 Casino event center. The 2 day summit invited all local veterans to attend free informational sessions on topics such as enrollment and eligibility for benefits, VA special programs, a workshop for submitting claims, understanding reimbursement agreements, and a panel discussion regarding housing and the homeless. The conference opened with the colors being presented by the Vietnam Veterans of America Brookings chapter 757. Chairperson Miller gave everyone a warm welcome then council members in attendance accepted on behalf of the Tribe, a plaque made by Alaskan veterans in a training program that helps teach new skills. It is on display at Howonquet Hall.
