Who We Are

We help U.S.
military members,
veterans and
military spouses

Employment assistance is the #1 requested service from transitioning military members, and Hire Heroes USA provides that service to thousands each year. Through personalized service and support, we help veterans and military spouses get hired, and we help companies hire and retain them.

Hire Heroes USA is the most effective veteran employment nonprofit in the country, and our impact is demonstrated by our results.

Jobs on the Job Board


It started with one.

U.S. Army Sergeant Justin Callahan was severely injured in a landmine explosion while on patrol in Afghanistan. Back home as a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he met John Bardis. The two formed an immediate bond, and Bardis learned that Callahan’s biggest concern, despite his injuries, was finding employment.

After offering Callahan a job on the spot, he was inspired to create Hire Heroes USA—a nonprofit that provides free job search support to U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses.

Our Mission: Hire Heroes USA empowers US military members, veterans and their spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce.

Our Partners

Every year, Hire Heroes USA helps thousands who have served connect with new careers, and our partners are critical to the success of that mission. Thanks to the outstanding generosity of these partners and many others, we can continue to grow and serve even more veterans and military spouses.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

At Hire Heroes USA, we strive to improve the lives of those we serve by helping veterans, transitioning military, and their spouses in securing meaningful employment. The U.S. military is one of the most diverse organizations in the world and Hire Heroes USA is committed to building and promoting an inclusive workforce that is representative of the veterans and military spouses we serve.

We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.

Hire Heroes USA diversity initiatives are applicable – but not limited to – our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of equity and inclusion. We benefit when more people contribute equally to our mission.
