Hiring Our Heroes career fair offers veterans a chance to find new jobs

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

On Thursday, more than 130 employers were out at the Memorial Coliseum for the Hiring Our Heroes career fair.

The event gives veterans and military spouses the chance to find out about local businesses with job openings.

FOX 12 spoke with one veteran who said he recently retired. He stopped by the event to see the good work they are doing for others.

"Our veterans need a break in life. It's tough enough to serve and then come home to be neglected like we did in the 60s with Vietnam. I'm excited about this and my hats off to everybody for doing this. From my heart to them, it really makes a difference," said P.J. Mulchay.

Hiring Our Heroes events have helped hundreds of thousands of veterans find jobs across the U.S.
