The U.S Chamber of Congress launched Hiring Our Heroes in March 2011 and has recruited 1,700 companies to commit to hiring about 585,000 veterans with 369,000 veterans already hired, however the current goal is to get 500,000 veterans hired, fortunately the American Trucking Association has committed to hiring 100,000 veterans. With the driver shortage this is a win-win for both sides. They are using FASTPORT’s trucking track system to match veteran with fleets with open positions. TroopstoTruckers.com is another great programs trying to get our veterans into the driver seat. Check it out.
