BEL AIR, Md. — Harford County will be celebrating those who defend our nation on Saturday with a resource fair for veterans, active duty military and their families from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bel Air Armory.

The free fair is a one-stop event for information about veterans' healthcare, benefits, jobs and discounts. There will also be giveaways as well as free lunch provided by Mission BBQ.

The fair will begin with a brief ceremony including music from the C. Milton Wright pep band and a tribute to Civil War soldier Sgt. Alfred B. Hilton, Harford County’s only Medal of Honor recipient.

“We want Harford County veterans and their families to know how much we appreciate what they have done to defend us and keep us free,” County Executive Barry Glassman said. “I look forward to another great event as our resource fair gets bigger and better each year, thanks to the members of my Commission on Veterans Affairs, our generous sponsors, and enthusiastic community partners.”
