CAMO helps veterans transition back to civilian life

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of United States veterans received special treatment at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington this past weekend.

Challenge American Military Opportunities put the events together. The organization helps veterans and their families connect with resources in their community and readjust to civilian life.

Doctors and nurses provided physicals and answered health questions. Some were also there to help veterans who are looking for work.

"It's pretty cool, I guess. There's a lot of people out there that don't have a support chain, don't have anyone to help talk to or anything like that. So it's good to know that these programs are here, that there's people here to help you so you don't have to go through it alone," said Army Spc. Dallas Slay.

"All we were told by our military families is when they come home to their community they want what we all have, which is simply a job, a home for their families and the ability to transition back into a civilian community life," said Houston Cowan with CAMO.

Singers Vince Gill and Amy Grant also performed for the veterans who attend the event.
