Maryland Lieutenant Governor Announces Free Veterans Resource Expo
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (CBSDC) - Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown announced that MDOT (Maryland Department of Transportation) will host the 2012 MDOT Veterans Resource Expo to help Veterans transition from military life to civilian life but registration ends Friday, April 20.
The expo will offer information on career opportunities, education, health and community support which is specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of Veterans and their families.
“Maryland’s Veterans deserve the highest quality benefits and resources, and hosting this free Expo is just one more way to show our appreciation for their sacrifice by helping connect them with the jobs they need to support their families,” said Lt. Governor Brown.
“In addition to our Maryland’s Veterans’ Preference Policy in state hiring, this outreach will provide Veterans with more resources and information to succeed in their new goals and career opportunities in civilian life.”
Veterans are encouraged to pre-register for the expo to be held at the 5th Regiment Armory in Baltimore City from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, April 30. Registration opens through April 20. To register for the expo or for more information, visit the website here. You may also call 410-865-1164.

MTA will provide complimentary transit to those who register and take the light rail, bus or Metro. Your complimentary transit passes will be mailed to you once registered.
