Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - More than 60 employers were at Little America today for the “Hiring Our Heroes” job fair.
The event connects vets and military spouses of all ranks and levels of experience with potential employers.
Wyoming Workforce Services partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Employers Support of the Guard & Reserve and the Wyoming Veterans Commission to put on today's event.
“Hiring Our Heroes” began three years ago and since then, more than 1,500 companies have hired more than 21,000 vets and military spouses as a result of more than 700 job fairs.
"I think it's extremely important to support those individuals who sacrifice for our country. They've done so and they've come back and now they're needing our help to get employed to be involved in a community and more important to support their family," said Jerry Davis, Veterans Employment Representative.
