In his first trip back to Oregon since being sworn in early this year, U.S. Rep. Cliff Bentz, R-Ontario, came to speak at the Central Oregon Veterans Ranch north of Bend in honor of Vietnam War Veterans Day.
Dozens of veterans, their friends and families gathered Monday at the ranch, which supports veterans by offering peer support and agriculture-related therapy.
During a visit to Bend on Monday, Rep. Cliff Bentz presented a certificate and U.S. Capitol flag to Kristin Gyford, an Air Force veteran and licensed clinical social worker who received a Women Veteran Trailblazers award from the VA.
The awards recognize veteran women who continue to serve other veterans in their community.
