Jacksonville, PGA Tour Invest in Veterans Through Military Job Fair



By Army Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone C. Marshall Jr.

The city of Jacksonville, Florida, and the PGA Tour continued their commitment to serving military veterans and transitioning service members today with a large-scale military fair.

Working in conjunction with the PGA Tour’s The Players Championship and Jacksonville Veterans Coalition, Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown discussed the city’s efforts to increase veteran employment and end veteran homelessness.

“When I came in, I elevated military affairs to a cabinet-level [and] appointed a two-star admiral — Vic Guillory — to head it up,” Brown said. “My whole goal is to put veterans back to work.

We’ve got over 250 companies putting veterans back to work. We created a ‘Week of Valor,’ and we’re also focusing on making sure we have no homeless veterans in Jacksonville.”
