SOUTHAVEN, MS -

(WMC-TV) - Some veterans may have jobs after a Mid-South church hosted a job fair for veterans.

The Brown Missionary Baptist Church in Southaven, Mississippi and the Military Ministry held a job fair for specifically for veterans Sunday.

However, non-veterans were also encouraged to apply.

Over 200 vendors showed up to take applications during Veterans Day weekend.

Organizations from across the state and the DeSoto County Sheriff's office were there.

One Military Ministry volunteer, Jimmy Clemons, was trying to help veterans.

"We try to get veterans and people who are in all services the necessary means they need once they leave. We want to help them in every way we can," explained Clemons.

The job fair wrapped up just before 2 p.m. Sunday.
