(KSL News) -- The treatment of American veterans has been scrutinized since shoddy conditions were discovered at Walter Reed, the premier U.S. Veterans hospital. Today Utah Veterans Affairs worked to improve the conditions for Utah veterans.
Berni Davis, with the Utah Veterans Affairs, said, "Utah has a very low percentage of veterans that are taking advantage of their benefits, and it's mostly because they don't know what's there for them."
Representatives from health, education and employment resources provided information at a benefits fair. Utah's VA plans on more events like this to educate veterans about their options.
