Military veterans and their spouses can connect with 50 veteran-friendly employers as part of a job fair from 11-3pm today at Chaifetz Arena on the SLU campus.

The DAV RecruitMilitary will welcome veterans, transitioning military personnel, National Guard members, reserve members, and military spouses.

Attendees will be available to choose from job opportunities, continuing education opportunities, and business ownership opportunities.
