In the next five years, between 1 and 1.5 million members of the U.S. Armed Forces will leave the military, according to the Department of Defense. Many of these veterans will be seeking new careers; by a great margin, veterans cite finding employment is their number-one need when returning home. Our community is fortunate to have Red River Army Depot who will be sponsoring the Wounded Warrior Expo on Wednesday, March 18 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Truman Arnold Student Center located at Texarkana College. The event will focus primarily on Wounded Warriors, AW2, soldiers under medical review, veterans, family members and caregivers. The expo will provide information regarding job opportunities, community information and support services available to them within the region. Businesses, community organizations, and area service providers are encouraged to participate. Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas will be participating in the event.
