On December 7th, 1941 Japan attacked the United States Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. The following day, the U.S. entered World War II. This date, which will live in infamy, reminds us of the importance of our nation’s military and their families. As a new generation of veterans comes home, many this month, the U.S. Chamber is working to say thank you to them and those who served before them through its Hiring Our Heroes program. Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide effort to help veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment. 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. The program has hosted 79 job fairs to date this year, connecting over 80,000 veterans and military spouses with over 4,100 employers. With stops this week in Fort Carson, CO, Houston, TX, Las Vegas, NV, Hiring Our Heroes will wrap up 2011 in Fort Belvoir, VA. Learn more at www.uschamber.com/veterans.
