The Department of Defense will host a "Hiring Heroes" career fair Wednesday for injured and ill troops at Camp Pendleton.

The event takes place from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the South Mesa Club. 

The Hiring Heroes Program is a Pentagon outreach effort for wounded and ill service members whose careers were cut short by injuries received in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

The fair provides an opportunity to network, collect information and talk one-on-one with approximately 78 Defense Department, other federal agency and private sector recruiters and employers about civilian career opportunities. 

For more information, contact the base public affairs office at 760-725-5044.
