"Hiring our Heroes" program helps Veterans get back to work

Posted: Updated:

An organization that hires heroes was in the Panhandle today with a simple mission, to put more veterans to work.

The "Hiring our Heroes" organization teamed up with the Alliance Chamber of Commerce to help get veterans back in the work place.

Businesses from around the area were on hand interviewing veterans and their families today at a job fair.

Northwest Region Director Phil Maas says more than 84, 000 veterans and their families have gotten back to work thanks to this program.

"No veteran and no veteran family has ever asked for a handout.   What they do need sometimes is a hand up.  The ability to talk to,  lets call them military friendly employees," says Maas. 

The foundation will host another job fair next month in Holdrege.
