“Veterans have leadership and teamwork experience, and are people of character. Today’s veterans joined the military in time of war, where young soldiers were in the field solving problems that are not in books.

With this knowledge and a commitment to hiring veterans, JPMorgan Chase became one of the founders of The 100,000 Jobs Mission, which began in 2011 as a coalition of eleven companies committed to hiring 100,000 veterans by 2020.
