    The FGGM Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC) Wounded Warrior Job Fair was a ginormous success. This was the first Ft Meade Wounded Warrior Job Fair. Our objective was to provide the soldiers with access to employers without the stress of a regular job fair. We met that objective with a touch of class thanks to some many dedicated people who support our wounded and ill warriors.

    One of the keynote speakers was the Assistant Secretary for the U. S. Department of Labor. Mr. Ortiz, a 30 year military veteran and a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. Mr Ortiz is a father who has four sons on active duty and two of the children are deployed. Mr. Ortiz was an excellent veteran to address the Ft Meade Wounded Warriors and the attending employers. He emphasised the importance of providing jobs to our soldiers especially those who are wounded and ill.

    A special thanks to the Navy Fleet and Family Service Center for co-hosting the event. Our Navy partners provided the NOIC Color Guard, the U. S. Naval Academy Band (Jazz Ensemble—The Commandants) and the U.S. Naval Academy Vocalist to sing our National Anthem.

    It was a first class event and thanks to the Pentagon Channel and Meade TV is was view worldwide.

    R. C. Fisher,
    SFAC Guidance Counselor
