The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will host, Hiring Our Heroes - Fort Benning, a hiring fair for spouses of active duty, guard, reserves, and retired veterans. The event is part of the Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Employment Program dedicated to improving the lives of working military spouses by lifting them out of unemployment and underemployment. Several employers are expected to participate. These companies range from America's biggest employers to dozens of small companies from across the region with jobs available for military spouses of all levels of experience.
 Since its launch in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has been able to help more than 100,000 veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment.

Thus far, more than 900 businesses of all sizes have pledged to hire 222,000 heroes toward this goal.
