Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, was launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Working with The American Legion and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day. Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 530 hiring fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Through December 31, 2012, more than 18,400 veterans and military spouses had obtained jobs.

Veteran job seekers and employers should go to to register.  Employers must have current job openings, and must register.  For profit organizations may not register as non-profit.

If you need assistance registering, please contact us at If you have any questions, you can contact Bob Looby, Legion State Economics Chairman, or 908-894-0746.
