Video Message from Commissioner Saadi Regarding Stand Down 2022

Thank you for attending Stand Down 2022


Thank you for attending CT Stand Down 2022 on Friday September 23, 2022, at one of our five locations around Connecticut. Through Stand Down the CT Department of Veterans Affairs continues our commitment to serving Connecticut’s Veterans, Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel, and their immediate families by providing this “one stop” access to a range of programs and services offered by state and federal agencies, Veterans organizations, and community-based non-profits at regional sites across the State. Over 1000 Veterans visited Stand Down. We hope that you were able to access programs and services that were beneficial to you. To help us better plan for Stand Downs in the future we ask you to complete a short survey. Please provide any comments or suggestions that you feel would improve the event. We look forward to reviewing your feedback and suggestions.
