TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa-area veterans have a new place to turn for help.

After 16 years at 15th and Harvard, the Vet Center has moved to a new home at the Eastgate Metroplex at 21st and 145th East Avenue.

The Center hosted an open house Tuesday as a way to educate the public about the free, confidential programs for veterans and their families.

"A lot of veterans, they don't want the stigma necessarily, of going to a hospital," said Matt Stiner, with the Tulsa Veterans Court. "A vet center like this is located in the community, in the neighborhood. It doesn't really have, like I said, that stigma. You can come in anytime."

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett was among those there to thank veterans for their service and sacrifice.
