Bracewell & Giuliani LLP has provided a $10,000 special grant to American Jobs for American Heroes (AJAH), a national military hiring campaign aimed at encouraging employers to register, post jobs and hire National Guard members, veterans and spouses.
“The men and women who protect and defend this country represent the best of America with their dedication, training, and honor,” said Rudolph W. Giuliani, Bracewell & Giuliani partner and former New York City Mayor. “As employers are learning every day, veterans and National Guard members are also terrific employees who provide leadership and teamwork in many fields. Bracewell & Giuliani is proud to be a part of this effort, and we are pleased to show our support for the American Jobs for America’s Heroes campaign.”
The AJAH campaign, coordinated by the Center for America, is a nonprofit alliance with the National Guard. More than 1,600 employers are registered to submit job postings with AJAH that are provided directly with employment counselors in all military branches who are working one-on-one with Guard members and veterans to place them in jobs.
“Bracewell & Giuliani has been active in the AJAH campaign for more than two years, and we recognized their ongoing support at our Delivering on the Promise Honor Roll Awards reception last October in Washington, DC honoring top private sector, nonprofit, and military organizations who have stepped up to help in this important effort,” said Steve Nowlan, campaign director and nonprofit Center for America President. “Bracewell & Giuliani’s financial grant of $10,000 will help fund educational efforts for employers to effectively reach the skilled workforce available among those who trained and served in our nation’s military.”
