RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's a major job fair aimed at veterans and their families Tuesday.

This is all part of a "Hiring our Heroes" program, sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Since the program kicked off last March, it's helped more than 7,600 veterans get jobs.

Tuesday's job fair is at the Richmond Raceway Complex from 9 a.m. to noon. on East Laburnum Avenue.

The job fair is open to veterans and their spouses and any current military members that expect to be leaving the military soon.
