70 employers attend Paychecks for Patriots hiring event

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The annual Paychecks for Patriots hiring event was held at the Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday.

This is the fifth year for the event, which has helped hundreds of veterans and their families find jobs.

There were 70 employers in attendance that were ready to hire.

“The experience and qualifications vets have when they finish are exactly what employers are looking for,” Mayor Megan Barry said. “Vets are disciplined, they know how to get things done, they can handle pressure, and they know what it’s like to work with a team.”

To show even more appreciation, a few veterans received free tickets to Tuesday night’s Nashville Predators game.
