The CGCC Veterans Resource Expo is held annually just before Veterans Day. It enables Chandler-Gilbert to showcase resources that the college and community offer to veterans, as well as to thank our veterans for their service.

This year, Chandler-Gilbert Community College has partnered with the City of Chandler and the East Valley Jewish Community Center (EVJCC) to honor veterans and those who have fought for the freedom and equity of others. The EVJCC created an extraordinary exhibit using photos taken by WWII veterans Emmett Sturgill and Donald Ornitz. The exhibit displays the heroism of U.S. soldiers as well as the realies and experiences they faced when they liberated the Mauthasen concentration camp near Linz, Austria in 1945. The viewing of the exhibit is scheduled for 2:00p.m.
The Expo features more than 30 exhibitors from government, college and community groups that serve veterans. The event is free and open to the public.
