Job seeking veterans and military spouses had the opportunity to find new jobs Friday.

The American Legion Department of Illinois hosted a job fair for the veterans during its annual department convention.

The event included employers and resource agencies.

The organization says it is all about veterans helping other veterans.

"The veterans have put their lives on hold for whatever period of time they served, so they need the assistance to get back into the job market and be able to support their families," said Gary Jenson, American Legion Department of Illinois Assistant Adjutant.

This is their 99th annual convention.
