"The turnout was great," said Carol Drummond, veterans employer representative for the Missouri Career Center in Sikeston. "We had almost 40 veterans and over 20 employers." Employers at the six-hour annual event included the John Pershing VA in Poplar Bluff; Sikeston Social Security office; Missouri Department of Transportation; Missouri Delta Medical Center; NARS of Cape Girardeau; the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop E; Tyson Foods; Pepsi; PTI Trucking; Security Services of America in Sikeston; Ferguson Medical Group; and the Sikeston Technology Center, among others.
