HOUSTON — They’ve already done one of the hardest jobs in the world, but life after the military can be challenging for many veterans. 

One of the first big steps is finding a job in the civilian world.               

RecruitMilitary and DAV (Disabled American Veterans) are joining forces to help make that happen with the Houston Veterans Job Fair on Thursday, June 10. 

If you’re a veteran, military spouse or dependent looking for work, head to Minute Maid Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
