'Red, White and You' job fair connects veterans with employers

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Workforce Commission fights veteran unemployment with its "Hiring Red, White and You" job fair.

It's a statewide effort encouraged by the governor and the state's veterans commission. Sixty employers connect both former service members and their families with new jobs.

"They understand the skill level that the veterans can bring, they know they're disciplined, that they learned in the military, they know they're dependable, they know that they already know how to take orders," Danny Soliz said.

This initiative is connected more than 58,000 Texas veterans with more than 8,400 employers in the last five years.
