JOPLIN, MO.--- The Show Me Heroes Program is helping veterans, military members, and their families find jobs. Dozens of employers were at the National Guard Armory for the Show Me Heroes hiring event in Joplin today. The Workforce Investment Board says veterans and military members offer a special skill set in the workplace. The Show Me Heroes Program helps military members translate their military skills into civilian skills.
"These women and men have gone over and sacrificed for us and our country, our freedoms. The least we can do is when they get back is be prepared to take them, wrap our arms around them, and make sure they are employable," said Bubba Evansco, Workforce Investment Board.
For veterans and military members who missed the event today, the Missouri Career Center is also available for job help.
