|Operation: Hire Our Guard is a Panther Racing initiative to raise awareness and educate business leaders about the increasing unemployment crisis facing our National Guard, with the goal of making the connections necessary between the military and business leaders to secure quality employment for National Guard Soldiers.|
Unemployment is the No. 1 issue facing returning and demobilizing National Guard members and their families. Overall unemployment is 13% - as high as 30% for Veterans between 18-30 – and, in total, there are currently 65,000 unemployed National Guard members.
These goals will be accomplished through at-track programs during IndyCar Series race weekends, off-site and employer-outreach programs in states where IndyCar does not race and through nationwide promotional efforts.
