09-29-15 TN Dept LaborTULLAHOMA, Tenn. — Thirteen employers are assembling in Tullahoma on Thursday at the Tennessee Army National Guard for the fourth annual Paychecks for Patriots (P4P), a hiring event providing jobs to military veterans and their families.

To maximize meaningful job opportunities available at P4P, organizers required participating employers have only full-time positions (no self-employment, temporary, part time, or educational prospects). Paychecks for Patriots is an event coordinated by Dollar General, Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Tennessee Department of Military, and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

“We have a very strict criteria for selecting these hiring employers,” said Burns Phillips, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. “These are employers who both respect the military community and understand the quality of work these employees are capable of accomplishing.”

Tullahoma Employers Attending Paychecks for Patriots are TransCor America, TN Dept. of Transportation, Applebees/Woodlang Group, Nationwide Express, Jostens, Shaw Industries, National Pen, Tyson Foods, Miniature Precision Components, JSP International, Yates Services, Wal-Mart Distribution Center and Up Dish Services.

Veterans and their family members are encouraged to register online (free) at to receive a reminder and directions to the event later this week. The website not only allows job seekers to view participating employers, but also shows specific jobs they have available.

Tennessee Army National Guard is located at 1402 E. Carroll St., Tullahoma. Parking is free. For questions call Melinda Kelsey at (615) 253-6674.
