Today I attended the Boston Veterans Job Fair at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA, it was a beautiful day the sun was shining it was 61 degrees a perfect day for a worthwhile event.
Our veterans were there when we needed them, and we must be there now that they need us and support them in finding the job that they deserve and the services that they need.
There was over 68 companies exhibiting at the event. I applaud all of the companies represented at the hiring event who were looking to connect with Veterans to fill their present and or future jobs.
For the veterans that attended not only were their job opportunities there were also many exhibitors showcasing everything from training , education, health insurance, housing assistance, financing services specifically for veterans and tools to help veterans rebuild their lives.
I was particularly impressed with all the resources and support available to our veterans and their spouses.
