TAMPA — The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are playing host to a Central Florida Military Resource Fair Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. at Raymond James Stadium's East Club.

All veterans or active military are invited to attend the free event, where they can learn about employment opportunities, VA benefits and health care.

Flu shots and medical screenings also will be offered to service members as well as opportunities to meet Buccaneers alumni and cheerleaders. Also, the first 2,000 service members to arrive will receive a $10 gift certificate toward the purchase of concessions, which will be half price.

If you plan to attend, bring your resume, a military or veteran ID, or a copy of your military DD-214 form.

Following the Resource Fair, the Buccaneers' 4:05 p.m. away game against the Oakland Raiders will be televised live on the East Club's giant video monitors.
