Navy veteran Gerard Gray came prepared.

“This is what I applied for,” he said, smiling, as he took out an application.

Gray is one of hundreds of people who came out to FedEx Field on Thursday to a Veterans Career Fair.

“It’s nice to be told, ‘Oh, you’re going to do well at this,’ or, ‘You’re going to be perfect for that!’ A lot better than reading it online,” said veteran Carolyn Stratton.

“It goes beyond the feel good side of hiring a man or woman coming out of the military and understanding that you can get exceptional talent that you can’t find anywhere else,” said Matthew Disher, with RecruitMilitary.

“If I don’t get nothing else out of this, I’ll be happy knowing that, you know, they are showing concern for us, they appreciate us, and they want to give us employment opportunities,” said Gray.
