Walgreens Moves to Hire 5,000 Vets


Walgreens announced its commitment to hire 5,000 veterans over five years in its more than 9,500 stores nationwide.

The drugstore is partnering with Southern New Hampshire University for the program, called “Walgreens Helping Veterans with Educational and Retail Opportunities,” or HERO. Through the program, Walgreens will also seek to hire veterans into store leadership roles “with opportunities to advance,” the company said.

This is great news and another great example of the private sector doing what it can to help our veterans.
