KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- An event is coming up at Kalamazoo Valley Community College to connect employers with veterans. Organized by Southwest Michigan First, it's hoped that leaders of area companies can attend and learn about how valuable someone with military service can be to them.
The organization's Ron Kitchens says it's a problem for many companies. They just don't know what kinds of skills someone acquires when serving in the military.
Experts will be on hand for the event to talk about what veterans have to offer. It'll be on November first at KVCC's Groves Center from seven AM to four PM. Any company leaders that want to attend or take part can just contact Southwest Michigan First.
