Just in time for Veteran’s Day, Crossgates Mall partnered with Guilderland’s Chamber of Commerce have announced the details for the “Capitol Regions 1st Annual Military Awareness Day.”
This event will be the first of its kind in the Capital Region and will be held at Crossgates Mall on the lower level by Lord & Taylor on November 2nd, starting at 10:00AM until 4:00PM, according to a recent press release. “We want to hold an event where service members and their families can find information no matter where they are in their military career, whether it be PAST, PRESENT or FUTURE,” says Michelle Viola-Straight, Executive Director to the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce.
The Military Awareness Expo is free to attend and will have 40+ vendors that are all military related. Examples include: active recruiters, transitioning services, a job fair, VA loans, legal counsel services, as well as various workshops, seminars, and briefings all day. This will also be the first “Honor a Living Veteran” program at 10:30AM with the hope that all will attend and support our military past, present, and future.
