FORT HOOD — Soldiers and spouses are feeling more empowered to enter the workforce after participating in a rather unique career seminar.

Approximately 200 soldiers and spouses filled the Fort Hood Community Center on Friday to hear advice from some of the top business and entrepreneurial minds in the country ranging from an Apple executive all the way to a Olympic coach. The event called American Dream U, was organized by 166th Aviation Brigade, First Army Division West, with the purpose to help soldiers and spouses learn how to make themselves stand out to potential employers or to start their own business.
