Helmets to Hardhats: Military Veterans Rebuild the World Trade Center (2012)


Helmets to Hardhats is a program sponsored by the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO, along with several national construction industry employer associations, through which unions and employers are helping U.S. military veterans transition back into civilian life and establish new careers by giving them the opportunity to join the building and construction trades. This brief video tells the story of veterans who were deployed after 9/11 and who are now helping to rebuild the World Trade Center in their home town of New York City.
