You sign up for the military because youre a patriot, because it seems like a great way to pay for tertiary education, because you know in your heart its the right thing to do for yourself, your family, and your country. Then you get sent off to war. You grow up in the blink of an eye. And then what? You come home and ... start all over again? Lots of brave veterans return to hard times, insufficient resources, horrendous healthcare (hello, Walter Reed), and the feces-stained end of societys stick. It isnt fair and it isnt right. Thankfully theres an event that can make an immediate difference in a veterans life: the RecruitMilitary Career Fair, happening today at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and more than 500 veterans are expected to attend and participate in interviews with local, regional, and national employers. The goal is to help recently returned troops, vets, and service members find jobs and figure out what happens next.
