The VetAssist® Program was well-represented at a recent Veteran Job Fair in Fort Lauderdale, FL. VetAssist® staff Donna and Barry Appel partnered with Nurse Next Door to provide information and support.
The fair, hosted by U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) and Ted Deutch (FL-19) along with Reps. Alcee Hastings (FL-23) and Frederica Wilson (FL-17), was held on Oct. 6 at the Fort Lauderdale Armory. In a statement publicizing the event, the Florida Representatives encouraged area businesses to hire veterans, saying, “Employment remains a huge concern for our veterans, particularly those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. After serving our country honorably and courageously, the last thing our veterans should have to worry about when they finally come home to their loved ones is whether or not they will be able to find a job.”VetAssist® Program National Sales Director Donna Appel (left) with Rep.
