Walmart announced that it has hired more than 20,000 veterans since the launch of its Welcome Home Commitment
on Memorial Day, a campaign to hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years. As such, Walmart pledged to offer a job to any honorably discharged veteran within his or her 12 months off active duty. Walmart also kicked off its holiday giving with a $2 million donation to Operation Homefront and Fisher House to provide toys, meals and lodging to military families in need. Additionally, the Walmart Foundation has committed to give $20 million through 2015 to help veterans and their families prepare for successful civilian lives through job training, transition support and education.
