2014 Terre Haute Veterans Expo

The Fourth Annual Terre Haute Veterans Expo, will be held on Saturday, March 1 at Stark Industries, located at Hulman Airport in Terre Haute, Indiana. The hours will be from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. As in the past, the event will bring a mix of employers, agencies and community resources together to provide information and assistance to military veterans and their families.

There are many programs designed to assist returning veterans, but information about those initiatives is often scattered and hard to find. The goal of the Terre Haute Veterans Expo is to provide a forum where military veterans can gather and discover resources and information that will assist them in every aspect of their lives.

The Veterans Expo will host an employment fair, where attendees can discuss job opportunities with representatives from military friendly companies. Local Human Resource professionals will be available to provide assistance with resumes and interview skills. Representatives from area colleges and universities will be on hand to discuss training and education programs, and a diverse group of Federal, State, and Community agencies will offer a wealth information and resources available to help military veterans and their families.

Last year’s event, held at the was held at the VFW Post 972 in Terre Haute, more than 100 individuals representing at least 60 exhibitors provided information about a wide variety of resources and employment opportunities available to improve the lives of veterans and military families in the Wabash Valley. Around 250 veterans, family members and friends attended the event. The Expo also afforded many opportunities to strengthen the relationships between participating organizations, so that veterans can be guided to appropriate resources in the local community more quickly and efficiently. 

Last year’s Veterans Expo was vigorously promoted by local radio and TV stations, which aired extensive video coverage of the event in their evening news broadcasts. Numerous stories highlighting the Expo appeared in the Tribune-Star and other local newspapers, extending awareness of veterans’ issues and multiplying the positive impact of the event on the community.

The public is invited to come for a visit or spend the entire day, and area veterans and military members are especially welcomed. The intent of the Veterans Expo is to honor and thank our Veterans for their service and to extend them the respect that they deserve.
