Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle is proclaiming Wednesday "Hire Our Heroes Day" to encourage businesses to hire veterans and military spouses.

The initiative was started by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

It will be a focus of a job fair at Neil Blaisdell Center in Honolulu on Wednesday

The job fair will include recruiters from over 125 businesses, organizations, military services, and government agencies.

"Hire Our Heroes Day" aims to make employers aware of opportunities to hire disciplined, well-trained men and women who have honorably served their country. It also aims to help veterans transition to the civilian workforce.
