What was particularly memorable, he says, was not the plane flying overhead, but the reaction of the men in his platoon”

Exhibitor Packages
I have been to many job fairs recently and have been lost in the crowd of other employment seekers. At RecruitMilitary expos it is strictly veterans and their spouses. The recruiters can relate to the military veteran and our experience because for the most part they have also served and know what we bring to the table.
