The world's largest retailer is announcing a hiring surge... of military veterans.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from Washington.

Two years after launching a Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, Wal-Mart says the program has hired more than 92,000 former soldiers, sailors, Airmen and Marines.

(Profit) "If you served and sacrificed for your country, you shouldn't have to fight for a job when you get home."

Retired Army Brigadier General Gary Profit is now Wal-Mart's Director of Military Programs. He says starting next week, on Memorial Day, the retailer has a new goal... 250,000 veteran hires by 2020.

(Profit) "They're at every part of our organization, from store operations management or our Sam's Club operations management all the way to the corporate home office."
