Finding jobs for our vets is the goal of a massive job fair taking place in Fort Lauderdale today.

It's called "Paychecks for Patriots"

Already in its 2nd year, the event is open to veterans from all service branches as well as eligible family members who are seeking new careers.

Representatives from dozens of companies will be hiring for all kinds of new job openings...and it's completely free.

It all takes place at 10 AM at the 356th Florida National Guard Armory located at 400 SW 24th Street.
