MARINE CORPS AIR STATION BEAUFORT, S.C. -Hiring our Heroes, a job fair aimed at providing future employment for service members, veterans and their spouses, was held at the National Guard facility on Highway 21, Sept. 4.

Beaufort County currently has the lowest unemployment percentage in South Carolina according to the U.S. Department of Labor, and programs like Hiring our Heroes aim to keep it that way.

Eighteen of the 23 employers who attended the fair were local businesses such as Hargray, Malphrus Construction and local law enforcement.

Hiring our Heroes is sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and has helped employ 20,200 men and women since March, 2011, with over 1,200 different businesses hiring from the fairs. The goal set by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is to hire 500,000 veterans and their spouses by 2014.
