Atlanta Braves host 'Hire our Heroes' event

The Atlanta Braves were helping out veterans Thursday with a “Hire our Heroes” event.

The Braves hosted a job fair geared towards former members of the service at SunTrust Park.

It was part of a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find jobs.

The event featured career workshops and a job fair.

A wide variety of companies were represented from IT companies to hospitality and from logistics to healthcare.

The expo was free.

Each attendee was also offered two complimentary tickets to Thursday night's game between the Braves and the New York Mets.

This is the Braves' third year hosting this event.
