Several local colleges, including Florida State College at Jacksonville and the University of North Florida, were also on-hand at the event to offer guidance and assistance to veterans.

Attendees at the event had the opportunity to visit with representatives from each company to discuss job opportunities and their experience serving in the military. They also enjoyed a free lunch thanks to sponsor Chick-fil-A.
