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 U.S. military members, veterans and military 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.
