A two-day U.S. National Chamber of Commerce Foundation Hiring our Heroes Summit for service members, their families and veterans will be hosted on post Sept. 21-22.

This event is designed to help those who are currently serving, or who have served in the past, re-integrate into the civilian workforce.

Participation in the summit is highly encouraged for service members who are within 18 months of separation from the military.

The Hiring our Heroes Summit will begin with a social-networking opportunity at Fort Carson's HUB on Sept. 21 from 5-7 p.m. It will be open to community partners, employers, transitioning service members and their spouses.

On Sept. 22 there will be two events. The first will be from 8 a.m.-noon at McMahon Auditorium and will include seminars on several topics related to the career fair. It will include a keynote speaker, industry panels and transition-related workshops.

The second event will be the Career Fair from 1-4 p.m. at the William Reed Special Event Center. More than 85 employers representing government and private businesses, some coming from outside of Colorado, are scheduled to attend the summit. To register for the summit and get more information, go to the website:

County, state and federal civilian concealed carry permits are not recognized or valid on Fort Carson. All weapons brought onto the installation must be registered with the Provost Marshal's Office at building 2700 in accordance with U.S. Army and Fort Carson regulations and policy. Only law enforcement personnel in the performance of official duties may possess a concealed weapon on Fort Carson.

Despite the Colorado amendment legalizing recreational marijuana, use or possession of marijuana on a federal installation is a violation of federal law.
