    I agree. The Department of Veterans Affairs VA Acquisition Academy needs to have more job fairs around the country at other locations . What about a job fair at Ft Mac or Gilliam in Atlanta. This will help veterans who do not live in Maryland.

    This sounds like something with potential in a job search, but unless it is spread out across the country the many unemployed who cannot afford to travel (lack of money) can't get to Maryland. At this point, this program is extremely limited.
