The company will invest $100,000 in the Chamberís Hiring our Heroes program, a nationwide, grass-roots effort to help veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment.

Since the programís launch in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 200 hiring fairs across the country, resulting in more than 10,000 veterans and military spouses landing jobs. With a goal of hosting a total of 400 hiring fairs in 2012, Hiring Our Heroes is making a difference in the lives of the approximately one million unemployed veterans in America.

ďWe are proud of our ongoing commitment to veterans and employees serving in the military and are pleased to take our support to the next level with Hiring Our Heroes,Ē said Stu Levenick, Caterpillar group president with responsibility for Customer & Dealer Support. ďWe have more than 2,500 employees who are veterans of the U.S. armed forces. They bring maturity, discipline and a strong work ethic to their jobs that were honed during their time in the military. They are just the type of employees U.S. companies need to succeed in our increasingly competitive world. We're proud to support Hiring Our Heroes to help veterans and their families connect with companies who can use their skills and experience,Ē added Levenick.

Caterpillarís investment will help fund at least 10 hiring fairs throughout the United States. Combined, Caterpillar and its dealers have a presence in every state. Hiring Our Heroes presents an exciting opportunity for Caterpillar, its dealers and other companies to recruit talented individuals possessing a unique skill-set. In conjunction with todayís announcement, the company is sponsoring a booth at a hiring fair today in its hometown of Peoria, Ill.

Caterpillar has long supported service men and women and has strong policies in place to support those in the Guard and Reserves. Its corporate affinity group, the Caterpillar Armed Forces Support Network, plays an important role in helping military veterans transition to corporate life and also supports those who are called back to active duty. The company was also recently selected as a finalist for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the Department of Defenseís highest recognition given to employers for exceptional support of Guard and Reserve employees.
