Aiken, SC (WJBF) – U.S. Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) will hold two Veterans Job Fairs in March, one in the Aiken-Barnwell area and one in the Midlands, to bring potential employers and federal agencies in direct contact with veterans.

Congressman Wilson says he is committed to serving our nation’s heroes. “I am grateful to serve so many service members, military families, and veterans who call the Second Congressional District home,” Wilson said. “In 2013, I started holding these events to help veterans find jobs and receive assistance in transitioning from military to civilian life.”

“As a retiree from the Army Reserve and the South Carolina Army National Guard, with four sons who have served in U.S. Military, assisting veterans will always be a top priority of mine,” Wilson said.

All veterans and their families are invited to attend this year’s Veterans Fairs.

Below are the dates and locations for the two events:
