FIRST GUEST: Dave Hinman, Senior Vice President and Retail Executive of 5/3 Bank
5/3 Bank has teamed up with Career Builder to hold a veterans hiring fair on Veterans Day at Chicago’s Union Station in the Great Hall.
Bank employees will also be volunteering their time to collect donations for the Folds of Honor Foundation which provides scholarships and assistance to the spouses and children of those killed or disabled in service to America.
You can also make a donation to be included in an Operation Support Our Troops Care Package. Plus, stop by to meet some very special war dogs who have safely made it back home.
Make sure to swing by the Veterans Day Appreciation Rally with Ramblin’ Ray at 1:00 PM, too!

SECOND GUEST: Mark Doyle, President and Co-Founder of Rags of Honor
After spending a year in Afghanistan in 2010, Mark Doyle saw firsthand how hard the men and women who serve our country work.
But when he returned to the U.S., he was disappointed to see how many veterans were homeless or unemployed. That’s when he decided to start a company devoted to hiring homeless or unemployed veterans.
Rags of Honor is a custom silkscreen and American-made apparel company that currently employs nine veterans full-time, providing them with a living wage and a new opportunity to get back on their feet.
See the shirt designs and learn more about Mark’s mission to make this the largest employer of homeless veterans in America at ragsofhonor.us.
