CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - Service members whose careers were cut short by injuries suffered in Iraq and Afghanistan will have the opportunity to network with civilian employers at a career fair Wednesday at Camp Pendleton, base officials said.

The Defense Department will host the "Hiring Heroes Career Fair" from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the base's South Mesa Club at 202850 San Jacinto Road, base officials said.

The Hiring Heroes Program provides assistance to wounded, ill and injured service members whose military careers were cut short, along with transitioning service members, veterans and spouses.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network, speak with and collect information from nearly 80 federal agency and private sector recruiters and employers about civilian career opportunities, officials said.
