SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The 2017 Hawaii Transition Summit will be hosted, here, Oct. 10 thru 12.

Service members, veterans and military spouses can join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring our Heroes Foundation for this free hiring fair and transition summit that’s designed just for them.

This summit features key federal and state agencies, influential military leaders, innovators in the business and employer communities, and local community leaders.

Highly decorated Marine Corps combat veteran Sgt. Dakota Meyer will be a keynote speaker. Meyer received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions during the Battle of Ganjgal in September 2009 while in Afghanistan.
