Tennessee Military DepartmentNashville, TN – Maj. Gen. Max Haston, Tennessee’s Adjutant General, has announced a Middle Tennessee Job Fair to be held in Smyrna Thursday, December 15th, for National Guard members, Reservists, spouses, and all veterans.

The Job Fair will be at the National Guard’s Regional Training Institute, Building 500, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

We’re trying to help them every way we can.”
