Hoosier veterans in the Tri-State are getting assistance with employment and educational opportunities.

The Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs hosted a community outreach event Wednesday on the Ivy Tech Campus.
IDVA assisted with career opportunities, remission fees and benefits.12 companies were also in attendance and many were hiring on the spot.

“It’s not necessarily that they’re a veteran because our veterans want to be hired for them but it’s the skills they bring,” said Deanna Pugh, Dir. of Veterans Appointment and Education, “Dependability, flexible, work long hours, work well under pressure and just being able to adapt in leadership. “

Any veteran who missed the outreach event on Wednesday can attend a second event Thursday at Vincennes University.
