RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina is holding a meeting to talk with state government leaders and managers on the advantages of hiring military veterans.

The military employment summit will be held Wednesday at the N.C. National Guard headquarters in Raleigh. Speakers include Public Safety Secretary Frank Perry and Cornell Wilson, secretary of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

The summit is sponsored by the state human resources department and a group called North Carolina for Military Employment, a public-private partnership that Gov. Pat McCrory established last year.

State human resources director Neal Alexander says North Carolina officials want to keep the talents of military veterans in the state.
