Veteran Career Expo at Fed Ex Field

 

Over 300 veterans visited Fed Ex Field on Thursday, June 23rd for a free hiring event for military veterans and military spouses. Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin were among the many veteran friendly employers on site with national, regional and local opportunities.

“We have had great success stories at our career expos for transitioning veterans, or any veterans and their spouses who were connected with some really great opportunities," said RecruitMilitary’s John Lundberg.

 RecruitMilitary focuses on helping our recently returning troops, service members, veterans and their spouses with employment, entrepreneurship, and educational opportunities.

RecruitMilitary has 61 expos in 37 different cities a year. This was their 3rd time in the DC area and will be back in September at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Favorite Friday's: What's Your Favorite Date Spot?

 

Tired of going on dates at the same restaurants? Mix it up a bit by sampling a few of my favorite date spots in the DC metro area.

In my opinion, Gravelly Point; north of Washington National Airport, along the George Washington Parkway takes the cake. Bring a blanket, your iPhone to set Pandora on a good station, a bottle of wine or two, and dinner. It is a romantic picnic spot with a nice backdrop of the river where planes fly directly over your head.

My second favorite spot features an array of jazz artists performing a range of styles. If you haven’t been to Jazz in the Garden, it’s a must try and The National Gallery of Art does it right. They offer free jazz performances at its outdoor café every Friday evening throughout the summer from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Visitors can enjoy cocktails and a light dinner while listening to great music among 20th-century sculpture and flowering trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and perennials.
