Support Veteran Job FairsAmerican Legion National Headquarters is now gearing up for an August effort to win a Pepsi Refresh Everything grant to help us achieve our goal of 1,000 veteran job fairs nationwide in 2010 and 2011. Voting is scheduled to begin Sunday morning, Aug. 1. Check back at www.legion.org to cast your vote.
Every year, The American Legion sponsors nearly 300 job fairs, business workshops and career expos across the country. As veteran unemployment continues to outpace that of the general population, career opportunities for those who served our nation in uniform are more important than ever. Your vote for American Legion Job Fairs can help us reach our goal of sponsoring 1,000 veteran career events in 2010 and 2011.
Your vote is needed to help veterans get back to work. It costs nothing to place your online vote. It could mean everything for a veteran to get a job or start a new business.
Remember, you can vote daily throughout the month in the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project.
