By Merrill Knox Comment

A week from today, the “Today” show will broadcast live from the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum for a nationwide hiring fair supporting veterans and military spouses.

The show marks the one-year anniversary of “Hiring Our Heroes,” a joint NBC News and U.S. Chamber of Commerce initiative to get veterans back into the workforce. The two organizations have hosted more than 100 hiring fairs since March 2011 and have committed to 400 more in the coming year.

NBC News will feature “Hiring Our Heroes” pieces across all NBC platforms, kicking off on the Sunday edition of “Today” this weekend. Tom Brokaw, Kerry Sanders and Natalie Morales will contribute reporting for the series.
