RICHMOND, Va. (AP)  A Virginia program aimed at hiring veterans is claiming 10,000 jobs pledged to vets.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the milestone Wednesday for the Virginia Values Veterans Program.

Since June 2012, the so-called V3 Program has accepted 234 member companies. Those companies have pledged 10,000 jobs and hired nearly 7,000 veterans.

McAuliffe has announced incentives to expand the program. They would reward companies for successfully recruiting, hiring and retaining service members and veterans seeking private sector employment.

The proposals are before the General Assembly.
