The "Working with Our Troups" Job and Resource Fair held on July 16, 2015 helped nearly 400 veterans and spouses connect to local employers. About 100 employers attended, all with jobs to fill and eager to talk to local veterans, their spouses and military personnel preparing to enter the civilian job market.
