Hiring Our Heroes
Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide effort to help veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment. Launched in conjunction with the Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the Hiring Our Heroes network of partnerships includes local chambers, veterans assistance groups, and government agencies, including the White House’s Joining Forces initiative. Through hiring fairs across the country and special programs for women veterans, military spouses, and wounded warriors, Hiring Our Heroes is working to bring down unemployment for America’s veterans.
