Fort Sill Job Fair Helps Veteran Family Find Work

LAWTON Okla_ 7News has some good news out of last month's military job fair at Fort Sill.

It was a success for one soon-to-be Lawton/Fort Sill couple. Marcus and Laura Powell are army veterans who live in Illinois. They'd never been stationed here, but Marcus had struggled to find a job for over a year.

So, when they learned about the job fair going on at Fort Sill, they made the trip. They said it paid off. Marcus landed a job, and Laura is well on her way to getting one. Now, they're offering words of advice for others.

"Keep trying and do the best that you can do," Marcus said. "Take the time and do the research at what you're really looking for."

"Keep driving on," Laura said. "Do the best you can."

The Powells were in town Thursday to share their success story to other veterans looking for work. They bought a house in Apache and will move here with their two boys at the end of August.
