LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Paving the way for veterans to land jobs building the new Ohio River Bridges, that was the goal of a job fair tonight in New Albany.

Scores showed up at the National Guard Armory looking for work.

WVB East End Partners and Walsh Construction, along with several contractors and sub-contractors were there.

Organizers say veterans have the qualities these companies are looking for.

Unemployment among Indiana National Guard members is around 18% which is twice as high as the state's overall jobless rate.
