Texas Governor Greg Abbott is inviting Texas veterans, service members, and veteran spouses to participate in the upcoming 2023 Hiring Red, White, & You! statewide hiring fair that starts today, November 1, and runs through November 17. 

“One of the many reasons our state is the economic engine of America is we continue to encourage employers to tap into the talent of our brave veterans who selflessly answered the call to serve our nation,” said Governor Abbott. “From leadership skills, high-quality professionalism, and mission-driven mindsets, Texas veterans bring a competitive advantage to any Texas business.

The event is being hosted by the Texas Workforce Commission in partnership with the Office of the Governor, local workforce development boards, the Texas Medical Center, and the Texas Veterans Commission. The Hiring Red, White & You! statewide veterans hiring fair is designed to connect military veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses with Texas employers who rightfully seek veterans with exceptional skills and experience.

See Inside Jimmy Buffett's Staggering $6.9 Million Palm Beach Mansion

Jimmy Buffett sure knew how to live the good life. His former 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 4,039-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Eden Properties neighborhood in Palm Beach is exactly the kind of laid-back home you'd expect the superstar to relax in when he was off the road.

The interior centers around a combined dining and living room with eye-popping vaulted ceilings topped off by skylights, while a massive wall of mahogany-framed sliding glass doors looks out over the pool area outside. The kitchen is decorated in gleaming white, and each of the bedrooms has its own attached bathroom, while the massive master suite also has sliding glass doors that open to both the pool and a bathroom that looks like it belongs in a high-end resort.

The exterior of the house is just as striking, centered around a sparkling pool of deep cobalt blue. The pool area features plenty of lounging, and a loggia just outside the living room offers open-air dining. There are lush gardens, brick paths that walk through elaborate pergolas and a fountain. The property also features a two-car garage with a guest suite overhead, and it offers deeded access to the beach nearby.
