One way to support veterans who have served is through the state’s Show-Me Heroes program, Gov. Jay Nixon said. Missouri employers who sign up for Show-Me Heroes online at MO.gov pledge to give first consideration to military veterans when those employers fill job positions. Gov. Nixon began the program in January 2010; to date, 1,967 employers have taken the Show-Me Heroes pledge, and they have hired more than 1,500 veterans.
