PHILADELPHIA, June 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Wednesday, June 25, The 2014 Army Veterans & Navy Veterans football teams will host a Veterans Employment Boot Camp for 35-50 unemployed Veterans. Participants will attend a presentation on self-promotion and interview skills, then interview for positions working at Saturday's historic game.
The game, to be played Saturday, June 28, will feature legendary former players from both Annapolis and West Point. The game comes one week prior to the Welcome America Festival as part of The City of Philadelphia's Year of The Veteran. Last year, the Navy veterans won the inaugural clash in a thriller, and look to return home with the Commanders Cup again this year.
"Putting people to work is what we do," said Martin E. Judge Jr., owner and CEO of The Judge Group, a leading global professional services firm.
Wednesday's Veterans Employment Boot Camp will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be held at The Class of 1923 Arena, the site of Saturday's football game. The event kicks off a three-phase initiative focused on reducing veteran unemployment.
