HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

The U.S. Chamber hosted the Hiring Our Heroes job fair for military spouses at Fort Stewart.

The job fair is also for transitioning service members, guard, reserves and veterans. The goal is to help improve the lives of military families by offering them an opportunity to get out of unemployment and underemployment. Participating companies ranged from America's biggest employers to several small businesses.

"Well, I mean, there's a lot going on with budgets and strength. You know, when we first started the war, we need a lot of people, now they're downsizing us. So, it's always nice to keep a plan B,C & even D, just in case anything happens," said

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.
