Walmart hires 20,000 veterans since launch of its Welcome Home Commitment

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.
