(WHAS 11)--Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer is in Louisville today to help fellow veterans find jobs.

He's teamed up with Toyota and the US Chamber of Commerce for a "hiring our heroes.”

More than a hundred employers will be there including Humana, GE, and Coca Cola.

They are targeting veterans because the veteran unemployment rate is far above the national average.

Kentucky congressman John Yarmuth and lieutenant governor Jerry Abramson will also be there.

The job fair is free. It happens at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Feb. 21 1p.m. to 4p.m.
