Fourth annual Terre Haute Veterans Expo set for Saturday

TERRE HAUTE — The fourth annual Terre Haute Veterans Expo is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Stark Industries, 501 S. Airport St., at Terre Haute International Airport-Hulman Field.

The goal of the expo is to provide a forum for military veterans to gather and discover resources and information that will assist them in every aspect of their lives. The event will bring a mix of employers, agencies and community resources to help military veterans and their families.

An employment fair will include onsite interviews. Job seekers are encouraged to bring a résumé and proof of military service. Local human resource professionals will be available to provide assistance with résumés and interview skills.

Representatives from area colleges and universities will be on hand to discuss training and education programs, and a diverse group of federal, state and community agencies also will participate.

Veterans service officers will be at the expo to help veterans who may have claims.

“We’re trying to help veterans find jobs and/or resources to get to a job,” said Andrew Cockrell, an Indiana State University student and military veteran who has helped organize the event.

The event will be hosted by WorkOne Western Indiana and the Indiana Air National Guard 181st Intelligence Wing Family Readiness Program, in conjunction with Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-8th. The expo is open to the general public.

Many programs are designed to assist returning veterans, but information about those initiatives may be hard to find, according to organizers.
