The CDS Monarch/Warrior Salute PTSD Conference will be held Wednesday, October 2, at the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center at Monroe Community College.

It's being called the "Serve. Honor. Support. Symposium" and runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Laura Stradley, Director of the Monroe County Veterans Service Agency, discussed the conference Monday on News 8.

The idea behind the conference is to determine how the local community can best combine different resources to help veterans, and make the Rochester area a place where they want to stay and use their experience and expertise to make this a better community.

The event is free for veterans, $25 general admission.
