SAN ANTONIO--Are you a Soldier transitioning from active duty and looking for your next job? A veteran? Or a Family member wanting to continue your career? Garrison Army Career and Alumni Program and Army Community Service offices support hundreds of job fairs on or near our installations every year. Here is a list of events for transitioning Soldiers, veterans and Family members coming up in the next three months.
