A Veteran’s Organization Recruitment Fair, to be hosted by four different Polk County veteran’s organizations, is set to be held on Saturday, September 12. The four organizations within the County are the American Legion, Marine Corps. League, Disabled American Veterans, and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
All men and women that have served in any of the five branches of military are invited to stop by and pick an organization that is best for you. They are also seeking non-military spouses to be involved in the auxiliary portions of their organizations.
In a statement released by the fair organizers they said, “These organizations exist to support our military forces and local veteran families in every way from comradery to rendering final military honors at veteran’s funerals. You will feel an immediate kinship with other veterans you meet in these groups and will also feel great satisfaction knowing you are actively supporting those who have defended our nation, and those currently on duty all over the world.”
Representatives from all organizations will be present to answer any questions you may have. Refreshments will be served at the Recruitment Fair, which is being held in the parking lot next to Edward Jones (the old Walmart parking lot), in Mena, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday, September 12.
