Local businesses hiring heroes
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation starting a program called "Hiring Our Heroes," that they brought to Albany Wednesday morning.
There were over a dozen local and other businesses from nearby states that came to try and get some of the veterans here hired.
Erni Lombardi, the regional associate for the program, says as a veteran he knows how hard it is for these people to find jobs. With the economy the way it is, it's even harder. Lombardi says his program has had great success getting veterans hired in careers that they will excel in.
