HAMPTON, VIRGINIA -
The "Hiring Our Heroes - Hampton Roads"Â job fair will go from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hampton Roads Convention Center, 1610 Coliseum Drive, in Hampton, VA. This job fair is open to veterans, active-duty military personnel, members of the National Guard and Reserves, and military spouses.
In the first comprehensive review of the government's programs for treating post-traumatic stress disorder in service members and veterans, a panel of experts recommended on Friday that the Defense Department and the Department of Veterans Affairs expand access to services, particularly for people in rural areas, in the National Guard or Reserves, or in combat zones.
The report, by the Institute of Medicine, also concluded that the two departments need to improve their assessment of how well their many treatment programs work, as well as find better ways of coordinating care that can begin overseas and then continue on bases or in small towns across the country.
The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program is a DoD-wide effort to promote the well-being of National Guard and Reserve members, their families and communities, by connecting them with resources throughout the deployment cycle. Through Yellow Ribbon events, service members and loved ones connect with local resources before, during, and after deployments.
