    Sounds like a great opportunity! We would like to partner with you and request this type of event for our area. I am the Kentucky DVOP for the Office of Employment and Training servicing Ft Campbell KY and if you are interested in partnering we can supply space, staff and outreach to the local areas. I have a strong partnership with the Tennessee Veterans Representatives as well as Ft Campbell staff thus feel solid in offering you this prospect. Best Wishes.

    sounds alot like career service center, or one stop center….and trust me it doesnt help that much, wha they need is to expand business for only veterans. Because as each day goes by, more and more are regretting the military due to the fact that it cripples your chances of landing a job in the civilian life

      NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK. Your right about expanding business for veterans. We’re working on that. Traviezo.

    What about the worst place hit by unemployment Dayton, Ohio by Wright Patterson AFB it’s impossible to get a civil service job there

  • Rob

    Any chance of this even being duplicated near Fairchild AFB, Near Spokane WA?
    Believe it or not air flight opportunities are hard to get on a limited budget and there really is a lot of veteran’s unemployment issues up here in the Northwest USA too!
