OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College is proud to serve veterans. The college's award-winning Veterans Education and Training (VET) Center on CCC's Oregon City campus is ranked nationally as one of the best college resources for veterans.

The VET Center offers a variety of resources to veterans and their families, including advocacy and support to ensure success at CCC. The college's Foundation also offers an endowment for veterans and their families.

"CCC is committed to helping vets find success in and out of the classroom," Veteran Affairs Coordinator RB Green said.

On Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the college invites all veterans, active-duty personnel, reservists and Oregon National Guard members, and their families, to a day of fun. Learn about resources while enjoying a barbeque and watermelon-eating contest. Several nonprofit organizations will be onsite, including:

  • Operation Enduring Warrior
  • Liftforthe22
  • Tools4Troops

This event will take place at the CCC Bill Brod Community Center, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City, and is free and open to the public. All donations received during the event will go toward CCC's Vet Club.
