Austin will commemorate the end of the Iraq War with a parade down Congress Avenue on July 7. After the parade, there will be a job and resource fair for veterans inside the Capitol Building.
One veteran with multiple tours in Iraq says that’s important.
“I’m really happy that we’re having this job and resource fair because it can really provide a lot to service members. When you get out, a good support group is probably one of the best things you have, because when you’re in the army, you’re a team, and when you get out, you’re an individual again,” said U.S. Army veteran Marco Orrantia.
