 SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii – The Army is hosting a free military transition summit and hiring fair at Schofield Barracks, July 7-8, as part of a nationwide initiative to assist veterans, transitioning service members (those

leaving the military), and military spouses find meaningful employment.

 The summit will feature panel and networking events, recruiter training, workshops, and facilitated discussions focused on improving competitive employment for service members, veterans, and military spouses.

 Special guest speakers include the U.S. Secretary of Labor, Mr. Thomas Perez, and the U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Mr. Robert McDonald, as well as other national and local business leaders.

 The summit is being coordinated by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s
