Kelly York, a 23-year Air Force veteran, came to the fair hoping to find a job that will allow her to remain in the Los Angeles area when she retires early next year.

“I’m sure that they had 50 million places they could go and see,” York said. “The fact that they even take five minutes to stop here and say something to the veterans, that’s huge.”

After arriving at the event and speaking with some veterans, the duke and duchess plan to help prepare care packages for children of deployed service members and then depart Los Angeles.
