(CNN) – Veterans who have recently returned home are getting the attention of Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart Stores said Tuesday that over the next five years it will hire every veteran who honorably left the military in the last year.

The company says more than 100,000 people are expected to find work through the program, making it one of the largest hiring commitments for veterans on record.

The program is set to kick off on Memorial Day.
