In keeping with the Veteran’s Day tradition of appreciating those who have served our country, the Missouri Job Center and the American Legion Goad-Ballinger Post 69 are hosting a Veterans Hiring Fair on Thursday, November 14, from 2-6 pm. The post is located at 149 Memorial Plaza, behind the Shrine Mosque.  The event is open to all Veterans, transitioning service members, Reservists, National Guard, military spouses, military family members and civilian job seekers.

“Hosting an employment and resource fair fits perfectly into the Missouri Job Center and the Legion’s shared mission of helping current Military and Veteran families thrive,” said Sabrina Bonnette, U.S. Navy Chief (Ret), LVER, and Charter Member of Women Veterans of SWMO Post 1214.

“The Leadership of American Legion Post 69 is very excited to be able to host this event. We are thrilled to see so many employers from different industries ready to meet with Veteran job seekers in person,” said Steven Wilcox, U.S Navy Chief (Ret) and new Adjutant for Post 69. “For too long our building was known more for the weekly gaming than our Legion events, this Veteran Hiring Fair is just one of our many new endeavors to completely shift that paradigm,” Wilcox added.
