LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - For the third year in a row, Lincoln will host a Military and Veteran hiring event.

It is open to all active duty service members, Guard, Reserve, veterans, their spouses and working age dependents.

It will be held at the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, located at 600 south 70th Street in Lincoln.

The event will run from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 21.

"Nebraska employers continue to see the value of bringing veterans into their companies and offer an abundant array of career opportunities," said Governor Pete Ricketts. "The civilian population of veterans in our state is 128,000, and 50% of that population is employed, in addition to 5,537 active duty service members, 3,850 Guard, and 494 Reserve. I am proud of their contributions both during their military service and in their post-military careers."

This year's event will feature 40 employers with vacant positions to fill in the Lincoln area.
