All of the nation's major freight railroads are being recognized again as top employers for military veterans.

G.I. Jobs included CSX, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, BNSF and Canadian National railroads in its list of the top military-friendly employers in the nation.

The rankings are based on company policies on military service and company efforts to recruit and hire veterans.

The U.S. railroad industry said earlier this year that railroads would hire at least 5,000 veterans.

CSX led all railroads by ranking No. 2, but BNSF wasn't far behind at No. 5.

CSX CEO Michael Ward says military veterans are excellent railroad employees because they work well with teams and have safety and leadership training.
