Bozeman, Mont. -

NBC Montana has learned that the Hiring our Heroes job fair for Bozeman has been cancelled.

The job fair was set to begin this morning at 9:00 a.m.  at the American Legion in downtown.

We're told that some people showed, unaware of what happened.

We called NBC and they put in contact with a representative from U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

He explained to us a decision had been made to cancel the event earlier this week because of anticipated low turn out from employers and vets.

He blamed a miscommunication for not getting the word out to everyone involved.

Hiring our Heroes is a project sponsored by NBC and is in its second year.

NBC Montana takes veteran's issues very seriously.  We have created a page with useful links and contacts for everything from crisis services to job help.
