Video Message from Commissioner Saadi Regarding Stand Down 2022


The Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) is pleased to announce that we are preparing for our annual Veterans and service members STAND DOWN which will be held on Friday September 23, 2022 from 8:00am – 2:00pm at five regional locations in Danbury – Danbury War Memorial 1 Memorial Drive, (New Location) Bristol – Bristol Sports Armory 61 Center Street, (Change of Location) Bridgeport - University of Bridgeport, 400 University Ave, Norwich – Easter Seals Veterans Rally Point, 24 Stott Ave., and at our main campus in Rocky Hill at 287 West Street.  The DVA continues our commitment to serving Connecticut’s Veterans 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. We hope this approach to Stand Down will help more Veterans and service members throughout Connecticut connect with the programs and benefits they have earned.


In the coming months the DVA will update this website to include registration information, transportation schedules, a list of available services at each location and FAQ’s.


We look forward to seeing you at Stand Down again this year.
