In March of 2011, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Working with our network of 1600 state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal was to create a movement across America in hundreds of local communities where veterans and military families return every day.

Hiring Our Heroes Job Fair: A Newbie’s Perspective: "To say I was pleasantly surprised by how wrong I was is an understatement.

Always great to hear about positive experiences! - MilitaryAvenue.com
