BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - The Bossier Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Spring Veterans’ Job and Resource Fair on Thursday.

The job fair will feature more than 70 businesses.

KSLA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1Pkhpx4 ) the event is timely in light of Barksdale Air Force Base recent elevation to command by a four-star general. That move is expected to bring more military personnel to the area and more economic growth.

The chamber says the event is also aimed at helping military retirees stay in the area.

The job fair, a partnership with Goodwill Industries, is open to all active and retired military personnel and their immediate families. It will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Bossier Civic Center in Bossier City.
