The Birmingham event was the 47th RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo of 74 scheduled in 2010 in 37 cities. The event was highly successful, with 256 veterans, spouses and family members as well as 23 exhibitors in attendance. The Featured Veteran-Friendly Organizations were DeVry University, Education Corporation of America, Home Depot, Lockheed Martin Corporation, US Department of Transportation, and Wal-Mart. This event was proudly sponsored by Culinard, Ecotech Institute, Golf Academy of America and Virginia College. Our event director was Robert Walker, a veteran of the U.S. Army and RecruitMilitary’s Director of Events & National Accounts. The Birmingham Marriott staff treated all of the veterans and exhibitors in attendance tremendously, rolling out the red carpet for all. This was the 5th Opportunity Expo in the Birmingham area for RecruitMilitary since 2008.
