JOINT BASE MYER-HENDERSON HALL, Va. - The Fort Myer Army Education Center is hosting a career and education fair Nov. 21 at the Fort Myer Community Center, Bldg. 405, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“This is an excellent opportunity for people to get career information on the military side and information on colleges and universities which offer a wide variety of degree programs,” said Tim Battle, career and education services specialist with the Fort Myer Education Center.

He said more than 30 college and career program representatives will be at the event, including Military OneSource and other benefit agencies.

“This is an opportunity to do one-stop shopping, particularly for those soldiers who know they will be transitioning out of service in the next year to 18 months. They can show up and define those things in their transition plans,” Battle said. “Also, for people staying in the military, they can get information from representatives from career programs like the Army’s Medical Career Program; Green to Gold Program and the Chaplain’s Program. The United States Army Band will be there for the first time recruiting new members with musical talent.”

The fair is open to active duty, reserve and National Guard servicemembers, Department of Defense civilians and military family members.

For additional information, contact the Fort Myer Army Education Center at 703-696-3070.
