The Maryland Department of Transportation plans to hold an event this month meant to help veterans in their transition to civilian life. The MDOT Veterans Resource Expo will be open to veterans and their family members, and it will offer information on issues ranging from careers and education to personal finances and health.

The free event will offer information on careers with MDOT as well as what services some of the department’s divisions can offer. Representatives from other state agencies, several local colleges and local community groups are also scheduled to attend.

The expo will also offer help with creating resumes, preparing for job interviews and learning more about budgeting and personal finances.

It is slated for April 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fifth Regiment Armory (219 29th Division St., Baltimore). Head here to register now; if you register by April 20, you get a free transit pass for the day of the expo.

You must register to attend the event, and you must be able to show documentation of your military service or the service of a family member.
