Military veterans and their families connected with Dayton area employers and service organizations at the Vets Moving Forward event at Wright State University’s Student Union May 24.
This was the sixth consecutive year that Wright State hosted the event, which was organized by the Strategic Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE) and the Greater Miami Valley myVeteran Community.
Wright State students and alumni in attendance were pleased with the university’s involvement and support for veterans.
“This unique event is really a one-stop-shop for the veteran military community,” said Anthony Heiland, a 2014 Wright State alum and U.S. Army veteran who attended the event.
Some of the services available at Vets Moving Forward included:
- Veterans resource fair
- Veterans job fair
- Disabled American Veterans assistance with disability claims
- Dayton VA Medical Center enrollment
- Montgomery County veteran I.D. cards
Over 70 veterans service organizations and 60 companies participated in the event to connect, network and hire local veterans.
