Herkimer, NY (WIBX) - This Memorial Day weekend, local veterans have the opportunity to suit up for a different mission; rejoining the work force.

From Friday through Monday, the Goodwill-HARC Store and Donation Center in Herkimer will provide all veterans with professional attire needed to get a job.
