Veterans and their families got the change to have their questions answered Saturday.

There was a veterans' resource forum at Pueblo Community College, with representatives from a number of agencies and organizations.

It was a "one-stop" opportunity to learn about benefits and what's available.

Christopher Beltran of Veterans Upward Bound says "We have thousands, tens of thousands of veterans that live in our community, that are going to school, starting businesses, buying homes, suffering from illnesses, injuries and these types of activities are key to accessing the benefits these individuals, our veterans, are eligible for."

One big topic at the forum: questions about education benefits, especially from younger veterans returning from service overseas.
