Editorial: "Hiring our Heroes"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Next Tuesday, July 30th from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Double Tree Hotel and Convention Center in downtown Montgomery WSFA 12 News, the NBC Network in partnership with the US Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Montgomery Chamber will be hosting a veteran career fair entitled "Hiring our Heroes."

"Hiring our Heroes" was launched nationwide in March of 2011 under the direction of the US Chamber of Commerce to help veterans and military spouses find employment. In less than two years, "Hiring our Heroes" has hosted 434 hiring fairs in all 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico. More than 18,400 veterans and military spouses have been hired by 1,000+ companies as a direct result of these fairs.

We sure would appreciate it if you would spread the word among veterans that you know and make sure they are aware of this most worthy of causes taking place next week here in Montgomery.
