National Hire A Veteran Day – July 25


Every day, hundreds of our military personnel leave the service in search of civilian employment. On July 25th, National Hire a Veteran Day reminds employers to consider veterans to fill their open positions. As highly trained, qualified individuals, they are ideal for numerous trades.

Legislation protects separating service members as they enter the civilian workforce. However, the best way any potential employer can honor a veteran is to hire one!

While other service members continue to serve in points unknown, the day provides their returning brothers and sisters with an opportunity. Many skills gained in the military world transfer to the civilian world. Both small and large businesses benefit from the talent of our veterans, too. Regardless of the position, find qualified candidates in a range of fields. For example:

  • Information Technology
  • Engineering
  • Cyber Security
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Skilled Trades

Free training for veterans can be found at


“Hire for Attitude, Train for Skill” and do it with a Veteran!

Please take a moment to honor our men and women of the Armed Forces. Offering them your time and consideration in the civilian workforce is one of the best ways to do that. Share the story, too! Use #HireAVeteranDay to share on social media.


Marine Corps veteran Dan Caporale, the founder of Hire Our Heroes, also founded National Hire a Veteran Day. The day serves as a call to action to hire more veterans! By spreading awareness and creating a platform with a call to action, the day has now become the connective tissue linking corporate America to our veterans.

For information on how to make an impact and join the national movement, please reach out to Dan Caporale directly on LinkedIn or by phone at 305-877-0053
