Veteran and Military Appreciation Day and Job Fair at the Kona Farm Fair

Veterans and military personnel with proper identification cards will have free gate admission to the Kona Farm Fair on Saturday, November 3, 2012. The Kona Farm Fair has designated this day as Veteran and Military Appreciation Day.

There will be a one of a kind job fair for veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses, with representatives from state and federal agencies and veteran service organizations on hand to provide information on programs and services.

The Honoka’a High School Jazz band will kick off events at the Old Kona Airport Pavilion at 12 noon followed by an appreciation program from 1 to 2 p.m. and the job fair from 2 to 6 p.m.

The veteran and military job fair is hosted by the US Department of Labor and the West Hawai’i Veterans Cemetery Development and Expansion Association.

  1. Damon, while current active duty, National Guard and Reserve troops and their families have Department of Defense identification cards, veterans typically do not, unless they are also military retirees. Please let us know the kind of identification cards that will be accepted from non-retiree veterans who attend the job fair. Mahalo.

    • I’ve submitted the question to the person I got the release from. Mahalo for inquiring.

    • This is the reply I received this morning:

      “Well when you sign up for services at the Department of Veteran affairs they give you an ID card, if not a DD214 will suffice. If a person does not have one, they can call the Hawaii Office of Veteran Services to get one.”

Feel like saying something about this?
