Military Times, the online publication serving military servicemembers worldwide, offered a preview of Hiring America’s 30-minute episode taken our Town Hall on veteran employment.

The Town Hall episode, Keeping America’s Promise, was taped before a live audience at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas and features three panels which touched on the issues affecting veterans as they transition out of the military and into civilian life.

The panels, moderated by journalist Stephanie Sy, were comprised of representatives of leading corporations (IBM, 7-Eleven, AT&T, Home Builders Institute) and organizations (Texas Workforce Commission, DAV, IAVA, SHRM) that have a dedicated effort in supporting job training and employment for veterans.

The panelists offered solutions that are increasing access to new job opportunities for veterans of all skill levels through technology and employer incentives.

The episode also contains a special one-on-one conversation with former Army Chief of Staff, Gen. George Casey Jr. on how veterans can utilize their resources to get an education and how they can become leaders in their new roles in the private sector.

The first of two episodes premiered on Dec. 15 and airs via syndicated broadcast nationwide across 195 stations and the American Forces Network on Dec. 16. The second episode will air in early 2018.

Military Times is privately owned by Sightline Media, the publisher of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times.
