The first-ever national television program dedicated to jobs and career direction for returning U.S. military veterans has returned for second season. Hiring America, the highly successful syndicated television show, is currently being broadcasted on the global “Pentagon Channel” and 35+ local market television stations in major U.S. cities (many of which have high concentrations of military instillations).
The show is being supported by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the nation’s largest and most influential veterans organization with more than 1.9 million VFW and Auxiliary members worldwide.
News reporter Gigi Stone—whose credentials include Good Morning America and ABC News—has returned as the second season’s host of the 13-week series The 30-minute programs will include guests on career counseling and guidance, success stories on making the transition, and former veterans and military personnel in the news.
“The VFW is extremely proud of our record in supporting America’s returning veterans,” VFW Adjutant General John Hamilton, said. “ For generations, we have strived to meet the needs and represent the best interests of veterans and their families,” he said. “Our involvement in being an official partner in Hiring America is a new dimension, new vista in demonstrating that support.”
The show was created by Entrepreneur, Bill Deutch, who also serves as executive producer.
“I can’t think of any more worthwhile endeavor than supporting and helping the men and women of our military,” Deutch said. “I’m also very grateful to the VFW and the rest of our sponsors for making a second season of Hiring America possible.”
“At the end of the day, if we help make the transition easier for just one veteran—make it possible for him or her to succeed in civilian life—Hiring America will have done its job,” he added.
