Job Description

Lawton, Oklahoma - Something for everyone!
The Community - Lawton, OK
The city of Lawton-Ft. sill, only 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, has a population of roughly 100,000. Surrounded by mountains and small lakes, the city enjoys a stable economy, largely due to the 26,000 service personnel on active duty at Fort Sill and an equal number of former Army members who chose to make Lawton their home after retiring from the services. If you're thinking that Lawton is solely peace and quiet with order and tranquility with their rolling hills and vast rivers surrounding the area, you'll be a bit surprised to say in the least. You'll get your kicks while visiting the Lawton Rangers Rodeo, where there's always a show playing, or if you prefer to take in a little culture, you'll have to check out from a number of museums this fine town has to offer - from the Museum of the Great Plains to the U.S. Field artillery Museum. Not to mention if you've been bitten by the shopping bug, you can choose from five different shopping centers located across the town! You'll have to see it for yourself to believe it; Lawton has a little bit of something for everyone!
