About 100 veterans from the Marines, the National Guard and elsewhere arrived at a job fair in Portsmouth Tuesday morning, resumes in hand.  There, they met with recruiters from WalMart to the Federal Prison system.   Between an employment workshop and a presentation by Governor Maggie Hassan, recruiters and vets together recited the Pledge of Allegience.   
Hiring Our Heroes is a project of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
