Veterans across the state getting a little push Thursday in the search for their next career opportunity. 

It's part of the Hiring Red, White and You campaign, partnering with Workforce Solutions to help veterans connect with employers statewide. The event is today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at the Hotel Ava near the South Loop. 

The goal is to help vets utilize the skills they learned during their military careers, but the event's also open to military spouses. 

"Today in the transition of the Army, military services it's very important because of the family," Martin Aguirre, Chief Executive Officer for Workforce Solutions of the South Plains, said. "You don't just transfer the service member, you transfer the whole family. And so we look at that and say many times they're the one out there working in the community as well."

More than 60 employers are in attendance to assist veterans in our area looking to take that next step.
