WASHINGTON – Today, Task Force Movement: Life Cycle Pathways for Veterans and Military
to Trucking and Cyber Security (TFM) announced a new partnership with Military Hire, an
organization dedicated to connecting veterans with employers. Task Force Movement has
already assisted hundreds of veterans, transitioning servicemembers, and their families with
obtaining training and credentials to secure employment in the civilian trucking and
cybersecurity sectors. This new partnership will help the Task Force facilitate employment on
Military Hire’s website, which connects employers with veterans who have matching skills and
emphasizes the value of hiring veterans.


“This new partnership will help us efficiently connect even more veterans with good-paying jobs
in the private sector,” said Task Force Chairman Patrick J. Murphy. “Thousands of
employers rely on Military Hire’s database to find qualified and trustworthy candidates for open
positions. We look forward to increasing our job placements for veterans with their help.”


“MilitaryHire is excited to be a part of this initiative with the Task Force Movement and the
broader team it has assembled. This partnership will initially address two of the country’s most
pressing skilled-candidate needs – logistics and cyber security workers. These needs will be met
with what we consider the best trained candidates in the world – Veterans of the United States
military,” said Jeff Finefrock,CEO, MilitaryHire. “Our focus in this partnership will bridge the
path connecting Veterans to companies which covet their skills and discipline. We will then
connect Veterans and employers to the TFM team’s solutions in skills assessment, training,
education, apprenticeships and a full array of Veteran services. This will be a full-circle solution
for Veterans and employers”.


Since its inception, TFM has connected hundreds of veterans, transitioning service members
and their immediate family members with careers in the trucking industry by establishing
public-private partnerships with independent companies and training organizations. These
efforts include both facilitating the direct hiring of veterans as well as connecting veterans with
training and certification opportunities. TFM Trucking plans to offer the Administration a final
report regarding its progress in November of 2022 TFM Cybersecurity will offer the same
platform to the Administration after short and long term convening sessions with industry
